Lemon Battery Hypothesis?

Answer

Many people may find it hard to believe, but a lemon can be utilized as a crude electrical battery. In fact any citrus fruit due to its acidity can be used as a battery, as can a potato or even a beer beverage. To make a lemon battery, obtain a piece of copper strip and a piece of zinc strip. Insert both strips into opposite ends of the lemon. Next connect a voltmeter to the strips. You should be able to measure a small voltage from your lemon battery.
