Lemons and oranges contain citric acid that can produce energy with the help of metals and electrons. Adding certain metals and fruits can make just enough energy to power different electrical substances. The purpose of creating batteries out of fruits was to experiment with voltage power and to find another way to charge a cellular device. The researchers thought this project would attract people because technology is popular, therefore charging a phone without an outlet would be intriguing. To perform this project, the researchers started with the lemons. First, they cut off the USB head of the cable and stripped the wires. Next, they will cut holes in opposite sides of the lemon, then put the zinc nail on one side, and the penny on the other. The researchers then took the voltmeter and measured the voltage coming from one lemon. After that, they took the dual headed alligator clips and attached all of the lemons together (one on the cathode and the other on the anode). After this, they measured the total voltage from all of the lemons. The researchers then took each remaining alligator clip and attached them to the red and black wires of the charger. The same procedure was performed with the oranges. The data was found that 0.9 volts came from each lemon, and 0.7 volts came from each orange. As a conclusion, the researchers' experiment did not work out as desired, and neither the six lemons nor the six oranges produced enough energy to charge the phone. Their hypothesis was proven wrong. Although each fruit produced significant amounts of energy, it wasn't enough to charge the phone from the state of being completely dead.
