Usually people think that batteries generate electricity, but they're wrong. When a battery is charged, it has stored chemical energy. But when it generates energy into a device, such as a battery, it turns into electrical energy. There are things called electrodes, which are the metal parts on the ends of the battery, that let the electrons run around the circuit enableing the device to work. That is the main idea of batteries. Article posted March 21, 2012 at 08:23 PM GMT0 • comment • Reads 1521

 Article posted March 22, 2012 at 09:17 PM GMT0 • comment (2) • Reads 1150 This is a blog about my lightbulb and my motor in science. Me and my partner charged our battery for 3 mins it was still dead! Then we charged it for another 3 mins. Then we hooked it up to the lightbulb and it worked. The charger gives the battery more energy so it would work. After we left the battery conected to the lightbulb we left it running. And it died. Now im doing the motor. We charged the battery for 3 mins and we hooked it up to the motor and left it running. After we left the it running the battery was drained!! We also put colored tape on the spinny part. You need more energy to power up the motor. And the light was to light up. You have a battery charger you plug it in to the energy socket and the energy from the socket goes all the way to the charger that shoots energy power into the battery. And then it all happens a again. I hope you enjoyed my story about my battery. :) Article posted March 22, 2012 at 09:17 PM GMT0 • comment (2) • Reads 1150

We made it out of zinc strips, copper strips, blotter paper, a grain of wheat lightbulb and something called copper sulfate solution. We assembled the the zinc strip, copper strip, blotter paper and grain of wheat lightbulb all together and put it in the copper sulfate solution. We bent the ends of the zinc and copper strips and put the the blotter strip in between and held it on with rubber bands. I remember we duct taped two little wires that were connected to the lightbulb to the two strips. We placed the assembly into the copper sulfate solution and the lightbulb lit up. When we put onto a paper napkin it flickered and then never lit up again; even when we put back in the solution. What I can conclude from this is it's not always the same effect in the same scenario.

Then when you hook the battery up to the light as it runs through the wires it becomes electrical energy again and as it enters the light it becomes light energy and heat energy. When you hook it up to the motor it does the same thing except it turns into mechanical energy instead of light and heat energy.

HAHAHA! i know and YOU dont! but i will TELL you because mr. g said i had to. blah. well the charger goes ZZZWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOP!! and it does stuff thet makes me feel scienc-y. like charging positive electrolyte. and other technical stuff. well pretty mach it just charges that electrolyte solution so it has more power in it. and thats about it. the end!

We charged it for 3 minuets then the light bulb lit for about 10 minuets before the battery ran out of energy. The next day we charged the dead battery again for 3 minuets. Then instead of the light bulb we hooked it up to a motor. It ran for about 7 minuets that means the motor needs more energy than the bulb. Batterys have electrical energy in them. Batterys store chemical energy. When we hooked the light bulb up to the battery it conducted light energy. Some bstterys make heat energy off the the light bulb wich is a fire hazard. Mechanical energy is a battery powering mechanics. Thanks for reading! Article posted March 23, 2012 at 03:04 PM GMT0 • comment (3) • Reads 1095

If you plug a charger into an elctrical outlet (PS the charger has a battery in it. -.o) then the electricity from the outlet, goes into the charger, and then the charger puts electricity IN TO THE BATTERY.

We charged a drained battery for 3 min. And hooked a lightbulb to it. The lightbulb used heat and light energy. The light stayed lit for about 12 min. Then we used another drained battery and charged it for the same amount of time we hooked it to a motor which used mechanical energy. The battery only stayed on for about 7 min. The motor used more energy. Batteries give off electrical energy. That is what turns things on. Batteries have stored chemical energy that help the battery work and give things an electrical charge.

Since the motor didn't run as long as the bulb that means the motor uses more energy . Motors use mechanical energy & light bulbs use light and heat energy !
