Hand Battery

SKU Code: REMZ16

When both hands are placed on both plates of the apparatus, the sweat layer in the skin acts as the fluid in a battery. During this interaction, the negative charges are conducted from the copper plate towards the aluminum plate. A current is formed between the positive and negative plates. A setup within the apparatus measures this current and displays it on the screen. There are three plates - iron, copper and aluminum.
