Will the calculator work with a vinegar powered battery? I don't know. My hypothesis is that the battery will power the calculator because there are two types pf metals causing a chemical reaction to form in the vinegar. For this experiment you will need the following... 2 bowls, tape, 3 wires, 2 galvanised nails [ zinc ], and last but not least calculator.
First 2 bowls are used or cups and are filled up with vinegar. Next the tape is put over the bowls and they are labeled positive and negative. One side of the wire is wrapped around the nail and the nail is put on the negative side through the tape and on the other bowl a whole is pierced through the positive side and the same wire is put through.
A whole is poked on both sides of the tape and the other nail is put through the negative side. The other wire is wrapped around the nail and through the positive side of the calculator. The other wire is put through the positive side of the other bowl and the other side of it in the negative side of the calculator.
Watch what happens.
My observation was that the calculator turned on.
The reason for this chemical changeis because the two types of metals react in the vinegar causing the calculator to work.
