To teach that radio wavet can be captured create electricity.
To teach a basis alternating and direct current.
To educate that we can use natures own power instead of fossil fuel.To compare student hypotheses with the actual results of the experiment
Step 2: What's needed.
1 - 10 -20 foot rope or other solid material such as a pvc pipe to hold the foil
Lots of tape
50 or so foot of copper wire
2 - ladders or something that can be used to hold up the antennas
Rectifiers (see circuit)
4 - gemanium diodes 1n34 or equivalent (or any diode if that is all you have)
2 - 0.2 uf 50v ceramic capacitors
2 - 100 uf 50v electrolytic capacitors
1 - rectifier bridge 50v or more
1 varialble capacitor form an old am radio,
25 or more 1n914 diodes (or equivalent)
Tv antenna transformer
Tv with dtv support
Dual ended alligatpr clip wires
