Taking the Next Steps
Now that you've measured and calculated the internal resistance in a real battery, here's how you can experiment even more:
- Try making batteries out of different fruits and vegetables. Which have the best voltage and current sourcing capabilities?
- Connect several fruit-powered batteries to light up an LED. How many do you need?
- Measure and calculate the internal resistance of different consumer batteries.
