Abstract

Ninth-grade students learned that in order for electronics to work, electricity has to flow and electricity is charged particles called ions. Using what they know about ions, students picked citrus fruits to conduct electricity and charge an iPod. They tried to answer this question: which citrus fruit will charge an iPod the fastest. A comparison is made between two citrus fruits and their charging times.
