Sweet n’ Salty Capacitor

Testing-Four 9

Sweet n’ Salty Capacitor by Emily Daniels.

I started this experiment attempting to create a low voltage non-toxic battery that would be easy to make and carry around. I may yet do this but for now I’ve created acapacitor, which is a electrical component used to store energy in an electric field.  I chose to make the housing or shell out of hard candy because sugar heated to high temperatures takes on some of the properties of glass and is an easy insulator to create cheaply.
