CHAPTER 1
INTRODUCTION
Productions of fruits are abundant in any places which are useful in our economic uses or in an agricultural ways. Mango (magnifera indica), banana Musa balbisiana papaya (Carica papaya) are much abundant in economy. Mostly in Cantilan particularly at the “tabuan” is the state produces the highest quantity of bananas ( Musa balbisiana ), mango ( Magnifera indeca ) and papaya ( Caripa papaya ) . Due to a high rate of productivity of bananas in Cantilan they are easily available and available at low prices in the market. As bananas have a short shelf-life there is a rapid rate of deterioration of this fruit (Akubor et al.,2003). Banana (Musa sp.) is a large perennial herb with leaf sheaths that form trunk-like pseudostem. It is rich in vitamin B6, which helps fight infection and is essential for the synthesis of heme—the iron containing part of hemoglobin. Banana is also rich in potassium and is a great source of fiber. A good quality alcoholic base for producing vinegar containing 5-6% acetic acid was obtained. Simmonds (1966) reported that vinegar has been prepared by fermenting a mash of banana pulp and peel. Vinegar production from banana may enhance minimize cost of production and eco-friendly. Vinegar was known worldwide as a seasoning or food preserving agent. Vinegar is defined as “ a liquid fit for human consumption, produced from a suitable raw material of agricultural origin, containing starch, sugars, or starch and sugars by the process of double fermentation, alcoholic and acetous, and contains a specified amount of acetic acid” (Joint FAO/ WHO Food Standards Programme, 1987). Vinegar, a traditional acidic condiment, is widely produced from rice, malt, apples, wine and various other agricultural materials (Ciani, 1998; Horiuchi et. al., 1999). Vinegar production ranges from traditional methods employing wood casks and…...

...Introduction One of the most remarkable and novel discoveries in the last 400 years was electricity. We might ask, “Has electricity been around that long?” The answer is yes, and perhaps much longer, but its practical use has only been at our disposal since the mid to late 1800s, and in a limited way at first. Electricity is a fundamental form of energy observable in positive and negative forms that occurs naturally (as in lightning) or is produced (as in a generator) and that is expressed in terms of the movement and interaction of electrons. (http://www.doe.gov/kids/energyfacts/sources/electricity.html) Electricity is one of the most powerful forces in our lives. As a matter of fact, it can even kill you. The most vital part of electricity is called electric energy. (Stylianou: 1993) This is what we commonly think of when we hear the word electricity. “Electricity” reminds us of anything that we plug into an electrical outlet in order to make it work, such as lights, refrigerators, video games, microwaves, and computers. Scientists discovered ways to produce electric energy in large amounts in order to make heat, light and motion. These discoveries have improved our lives greatly and for many of us it would be difficult to picture what life would be like without electricity. One of the most common ways to produce electricity is through the burning of fossil fuels. Fossil fuels include coal, oil, and natural gas. When fossil fuels are burned, they release carbon......

...Vinegar Battery Overview A) Worldwide The World Energy Outlook 2012 and Electricity Information 2012 from the OECD's International Energy Agency (IEA) set out the present situation and also present current policies,* new policies, and carbon reduction (‘450’) scenarios. From 2000 to 2010 total world primary energy demand grew by 26%, and to 2020 it is projected to grow less (by 20% under current policies scenario, and less under other scenarios). Growth to 2035 is 47% under current policies. Electricity growth is almost double this. It grew at an average annual rate of 3.4% from 1973 to 2010, and is projected to grow 89% from 2010 to 2035 (from 18,443 TWh to 35,000 TWh) in the current policies scenario, and 73% (to 31,859 TWh) in the central New Policies scenario. Increased demand is most dramatic in Asia, projected to average 4.3% or 3.8% per year respectively to 2035. Currently some two billion people have no access to electricity, and it is a high priority to address this lack With the United Nations predicting world population growth from 6.6 billion in 2007 to 8.2 billion by 2030, demand for energy must increase substantially over that period. Both population growth and increasing standards of living for many people in developing countries will cause strong growth in energy demand, as outlined above. Over 70% of the increased energy demand is from developing countries, led by China and India - China overtook the USA as top CO2 emitter in 2007. Superimposed on this,......

Vinegar as Alternative Battery

...simple battery can be constructed with a cup, a copper strip, and a zinc strip. Attach wires to each strip and place them in the cup. Place the strips in the cup and add either Coca Cola or vinegar to the cup. If a voltage meter is placed across the leads, it will show between 0.75 and 1.0 volts. More voltage can be created by adding several of these cells in series. Vinegar is a liquid consisting mainly of acetic acid (CH3COOH) and water. The acetic acid is produced by the fermentation of ethanol by acetic acid bacteria. Vinegar is now mainly used as a cooking ingredient, but historically, as the most easily available mild acid, it had a great variety of industrial, medical, and domestic uses, some of which (such as a general household cleanser) are still promoted today. Commercial vinegar is produced either by fast or slow fermentation processes. In general, slow methods are used with traditional vinegars, and fermentation proceeds slowly over the course of months or a year. The longer fermentation period allows for the accumulation of a nontoxic slime composed of acetic acid bacteria. Fast methods add mother of vinegar to the source liquid before adding air using a venturi pump system or a turbine to promote oxygenation to obtain the fastest fermentation. In fast production processes, vinegar may be produced in a period ranging from 20 hours to three days. An electric battery is a device consisting of one or more electrochemical cells that convert stored chemical energy......

Electricity

...------------------------------------------------- Electricity Lightning is one of the most dramatic effects of electricity. Electricity is a general term encompassing a variety of phenomena resulting from the presence and flow of electric charge. These include many easily recognizable phenomena, such as lightning, static electricity, and the flow of electrical current in an electrical wire. In addition, electricity encompasses less familiar concepts such as the electromagnetic field and electromagnetic induction. The word is from the New Latin ēlectricus, "amber-like"coined in the year 1600 from the Greek ήλεκτρον (electron) meaning amber(hardened plant resin), because static electricity effects were produced classically by rubbing amber. Usage In general usage, the word "electricity" adequately refers to a number of physical effects. In scientific usage, however, the term is vague, and these related, but distinct, concepts are better identified by more precise terms: * Electric charge: a property of some subatomic particles, which determines their electromagnetic interactions. Electrically charged matter is influenced by, and produces, electromagnetic fields. * Electric current: a movement or flow of electrically charged particles, typically measured in amperes. * Electric field: an influence produced by an electric charge on other charges in its vicinity. * Electric potential: the capacity of an electric field to do work on an electric charge,......

Vinegar as Alternative Battery

...INTRODUCTION a. BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY Vinegars had been used at home solely for cooking. Most people are not aware that it actually has other uses at home like lighting small LED bulbs. Thus, when the researchers came across this project on the internet, we grabbed the opportunity of proving whether or not this is a possibility. With the cheap and readily-available materials, this project can provide households with an alternative source of light that can easily be done and replicated. Although this may seem as a step back for advancements in technology because it makes use of household materials instead of more complicated ones, this is one step ahead towards innovation. b. STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM Can Vinegar be used as a battery for lighting small LED bulbs? c. SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY The researchers chose this investigatory project of vinegar being used as a battery for lighting LED lights for two of its possible contributions to the community: first, it can be used as a safe, better and cheaper alternative to sources of lights in case of blackouts, and second, people can use it as an alternative source of light at home to lower their power consumption.

...some vinegar, nails, copper wire, and an ice tray… you’re in for a lesson in circuits you’ll never forget. Materials * Distilled white vinegar * 5 pieces of copper wire * 5 galvanized nails * Ice tray * 1 LED light * Adult supervision Experiment 1. Wrap a nail with a piece of copper wire, leaving a section of wire extending from below the head of the nail. 2. Repeat Step 1 with the remaining 4 nails and 4 pieces of copper wire. 3. Fill 6 wells of an ice tray with distilled white vinegar. 4. Create a circuit by inserting each nail into a well of vinegar while placing the extended wire into the next well. 5. Place one “leg” of an LED light into the well with only a copper wire inside it and place the other LED “leg” into the well with only a nail in it. If the bulb lights up, you nailed it! If the bulb doesn’t light up, flip the legs around! How Does It Work? Batteries are comprised of two different metals suspended in an acidic solution. With the Ice Tray Battery, the two metals are zinc and copper. The zinc is in the galvanization of the nail, and the copper wire. The acid comes from the vinegar inside the ice tray. More specifically, the acid comes from the 4-8% of the vinegar that is acetic acid. The two metal components are electrodes, the parts of a battery where electrical current enters and leaves the battery. With a zinc and copper set-up, the current will flow out of the wire and into the nail. The electricity......
