In this Galvanic Cell experiment, you’ll use different materials to create a battery, similar to the previous Lemon Battery experiment. Unlike the previous experiment, you’ll make your own electrolyte solution, using zinc sulfate and copper sulfate. You’ll follow along with the step-by-step instructions to set up your experiment, being careful to follow the safety guidelines and wearing the appropriate safety equipment that’s found in your starter kit. Continue your understanding of electrochemistry and how the Galvanic Cell can produce electricity through a chemical reaction. Light up the LED and make the buzzer sound by putting your newfound knowledge to the test.

Lesson Preview

Why are metals good conductors of electricity? Find out in Lesson 4 as you build and experiment with two different types of batteries. Explore chemical reactions between metallic and non-metallic elements and learn about reactivity. Continue your understanding of chemistry concepts, building off what you learned about the periodic table in Lesson 1. These exciting experiments show you how different substances can conduct electricity and explain how chemical bonds make up all parts of our lives. Unlock a better understanding of the world around you through these hands-on experiments. Electric shocks not included!
