Potato Power!

In this on-line demo we introduce the concepts of voltage and current. We discuss how potatoes can be wired in series or in parallel to make a battery. A trip to your friendly neighborhood electronics vendor may be neccessary to get all the components, but this demo is well worth it.

This demo was conceived and developed by Raghuveer Parthasarathy and Dan Durkin.
