Purpose The purpose of this experiment is to get an understanding of measuring potentials of chemicals by creating small voltaic cells. Through this, we can find out how strong the electron flow is of two metals and how much electricity is produced because of this. The design of a battery consists of these concepts. Procedures The procedures stayed the same as those in the lab notebook throughout the entire experiment. The three metals used in our experiment were Al, Pb and Fe. Dillon, Stephanie.
