In this science fair project,construct batteriesfrom various fruits and testthem to see which one will producethe most electric current. Then, determine if it would be practical to use fruit as a natural source for generating electricity.
An electric current is a flow of electronsand is measured in units calledamperesor "amps."Voltageis the force that pushes the electrons through a circuit (likethe pressure on water in a pipe)and is measured involts.
