Electrolysis and electric battery
The electric power of liquids!
Clean your old jewellery and make chlorine from table salt using water and electricity! Together, we will learn how these phenomena work through experiments on the conductivity of water. We will then compare the luminous intensity of an LED bulb in the presence of water or salt-enriched water. Following the footsteps of Mr. Volta, we will then make an electric battery out of lemon juice to power an alarm clock! It will electrify you!
For 30 more minutes:
Get ready to be blown away by our production of a hydrogen fuel cell using water electrolysis!
