Two or more wet or dry cells connected in series make a battery. A car battery is generally a lead storage battery containing lead and lead oxide plates in sulfuric acid solution. In this experiment, you will construct a lead storage cell and use a direct-current power supply to charge it. You will use a Voltage Probe to measure the cell’s voltage, and then use the cell to power an electric motor.
In this experiment, you will
