The purpose of this experiment is to show how an acid (Coke) can react together with potassium to create a charger for an iPhone. Potassium and acid formed together makes bubbles. With both potassium and acid working together, they will give off energy to the iPhone. Why Coke? Every liquid will be either acidic or basic traits. An acid-base reaction is a chemical reaction that happens between an acid and a base. There are multiple definitions when considering the reaction mechanism when solving problems. Regardless of what the problem is, it’s always a known fact that when using liquid or gaseous reactions, they become less apparent. You want to use Coke because its pH is the acidity of the substance. For an acidity to be considered neutral, and has to have a pH balance of 7 or somewhere around 7. It ranges from acids to bases. Coke is an acidic because its carries a pH balance of 2.525, meaning it is very corrosive. Because Coke is an acid, it’s very easy for it to function as a decaying tool. Some say that Coke can be considered very dangerous because it can do such things as cause tooth decay, rust nails, and clean toilets, but truth is, Coke is a very big reactive acid that is consumed by millions of people on a regular basis.
Whether people know it or not, chemical reactions happen all the time in everyday life experience. Some you can see just by looking at them and others are a little bit difficult to determine. One might ask, well, what is a chemical reaction and how did this idea come about? Based off of many studies and experiments, Luis Istolar is the scientists that discovered a chemical reaction. A chemical reaction is defined as a reaction in which the composition of a substance and/or elemen...

Now, we know that there is an electric potential difference between the positive and the negative terminals of a battery, so the charge loses electric potential energy as it moves from the positive end (higher electric potential) to the negative end (lower electric potential (there is a work done here), so electric power for our iPhone can be calculated using the ratio of change in energy and the time interval: P=(∆q(V))/∆t or P=IV
