In this tutorial, we will show how to make a pencil electricity science model for your science project in simple and easy-to-understand steps.
Thermal differences help to generate electricity using thermoelectric material. The pencil is made up of graphite, and it is a crystalline form of carbon element. Non-metal carbon in the form of graphite is a good conductor of electricity that can be used to light the bulb.
In order to make this pencil electricity model, you need to gather all these readily available items.
- Sharpened pencils (both sides)
- LED bulb
Steps To Make A Pencil Electricity Science Model
Step 1: First, connect the battery and switch using a wire.
Step 2: Then, connect one side of the sharpened pencil to wire i.e.connected to the switch.
Step 3: Connect the LED bulb to another side of the sharpened pencil.
Step 4: Then, on the switch to experiment, you’ll see that the LED bulb glows.
That is the successful performance of the pencil electricity science model.
Pencil electricity experiment helps students understand the flow of electricity in the non-metallic compound like graphite and helps students understand the concept of insulator and conductor.
Things To Remember
- Working slowly and carefully during the cutover.
- Work on our self-healing mat to protect your work surface.
- Learn all you can about the materials and techniques you’re using.
- Work carefully during wire attachment.
- The battery will be warm during the experiment, be careful with it.
