Reasons for the hypothesis
The lemon is acidic whichhelps their juice toconduct electricity.
Fruits have chargesthat can be convertedto negative and positivecharges through copperand zinc materials.
The zinc is oxidized inside the fruit, exchangingsome of its electrons in order to reach a lowerenergy state, and the energy released provides thepower
