Lemon Fire

The project we are going to show you today is truly amazing. It can be a great scientific experiment for kids or an awesome survival tip.

Here is the science behind this project. You can make a battery to start fire with nothing more than a lemon, copper clips, zinc nails, wire, and a steel wool.

Don’t get this wrong. The lemon itself doesn’t generate electricity. Electricity is generated through a chemical oxidation-reduction reaction that occurs when the zinc dissolves into the lemon acid. You can squeeze about one volt out of such a lemon battery.
