Incredible Science Fun Learning Ideas:
- The copper plates act like the positive electrodes of a battery. They
are plated with a metal which is less reactive than zinc. When
the copper plates and zinc plates are inserted into the lemon,
a chemical reaction takes place. Electrons (extremely small
particles with negative charge) move from the zinc plates to
the copper plates to form a current, thus activating the
LCD watch. The lemon juice helps to conduct electricity.
You can replace the lemon with a potato, a grapefruit or
use soft drinks and see what effect this has.
