A hypothesis for a potato clock is a proposed explanation, or educated guess, for the phenomenon. One hypothesis is that potatoes have starch, a natural sugar, that can be broke down naturally and released as energy to power the clock.

A potato clock runs on the natural electrolytes given off by a potato the same way a battery lemon , banana , or Gatorade would .

It does work, because the Laws of Phylock.sics do not apply to the potato c

A potato can power a clock because all fruits and vegetables have an electric current in them, so the potato's act like a battery and supply the clock with electricity.

The potato size should be medium sized or the size of your hands but the bigger the better.


A potato clock is a science fair project because it uses a electricity to power the clock. One of the things in sciencce is finding how the electricity and the potato chemicals stuff, things powers the clock. It gets pretty complicated. Theres TONS of reasons how its a science project.

dont know do an observation on it and you might find out

no it lost all of its energy and acidic content (unless you secretly put a battery in the potato

The famed potato clock seems impossible, but an easy science experiment can give you insight into how this basic battery works. You already have most of the materials you need. A trip to the basement work area, the pantry and the kitchen drawer may help you complete your recipe for a potato clock. You'll need two galvanized nails, several inches of copper wire and wire clips, an LED clock with the battery removed, and a potato or two.

potato is consist of particles that allow the current to flow, and serve as an electrochemical cell for a digital clock

YES!! It can, but you might need lots of potatoes!:)
