Lemon Battery Light Bulb Experiment

How to Make a Lemon BatteryRequirements Lemon (fresh and juicy) Nail (2"galvanized, zinc-coated steel nail)Lemon Battery Light Bulb ExperimentStep 1The first step is to cut a slit into one side of the juicy lemon, and insert the clean copper coin into it. On the other side, insert the galvanized zinc nail. Ensure that the nail and coin do not touch each other. The coin and nail form the positive and negative electrodes respectively, thereby forming the single cell of the battery. The two oppositely charged electrodes will now permit the flow of electrons through them. The free electrons from the lemon juice will travel from the negative electrode (nail) to the positive electrode (coin).Step 2The rate at which the electrons flow is called voltage. The faster the electrons flow, the higher the voltage. The voltmeter will measure the rate of electron flow. If one connects the voltmeter to the electrodes, a voltage of 0.906 volts will be detected. However, this is not enough to light a bulb.Step 3To achieve...

Portable Light Towers for Convenient Lighting in Remote Areas

A light tower is one of the most useful illumination devices for lighting up large areas. It essentially comprises a tall post that has been fixed with a light assembly at its upper end. These towers are installed on small, yet heavy-duty trailers that enable the user to transport the light tower from one place to another. Light towers need to be powered by fuels such as diesel or gasoline. Portable light towers can be easily transported from one place to another. They can be set-up at construction sites, mining sites, search and rescue operations, outdoor events, parking lots, or at any place where electrical power isn't available. These towers are also used during natural calamities such as cyclones that tend to snap power supply. Depending on the amount of illumination required, one can opt for a 4-light, 8-light, 12-light or even 16-light tower. You could choose to switch on a limited number of lights from the light assembly. For instance, you could switch on just 2 lights in your 4-light tower if you...
