    1.1 What is a Battery? A battery is defined as being an electrochemical cell that has the ability to turn chemical energy into electrical energy. All batteries contain an anode, cathode, electrolyte and a separator. The difference between distinct types of batteries are the materials used as the electrodes and electrolyte. There are two types of battery categories in which all batteries can fall under, the primary battery which is a single use battery cell and the secondary battery cell which can

    amounts of water trapped in the mineral structure by polar attraction. CHAPTER II Review Of Related Literature The Baghdad battery was the foundation of this project and Baghdad batteries were built by Ancient Parathions. There is still no exact proof on where the Parathions were able to use it since there were no wires found for the electric current to flow. The battery is composed of a clay pot, a copper tube enclosing a half inch metal tube and an asphalt stopper as a resistor. Inside the

    The use of electricity may go back further known as the Parthian Battery. The battery dates back to the Parthian empire and is believed to be 2,000 years old. However, the battery is known from its creator Alessandro Volta (a chemist and physicist and pioneer of electrical science). Volta is known for voltaic electricity (same as volts) and for many other things. The basic property of a battery is that two objects work as electrodes, causing an electrochemical reaction which generates voltage. 5]

    Batteries are essential for the wireless heart monitors to operate. A battery is composed of electrochemical cells that convert stored chemical energy to electrical energy and consists of a cathode (the positive terminal) and an anode (the negative terminal). The battery needs to connect to the external circuits of the wireless heart monitor, and electrolytes move and cause the electrolytes to act as ions and preform work. There are two ways in which batteries can behave: a primary and a secondary

    Batteries are machines that turn chemical energy into electrical energy by combining different chemicals. (What is a battery, n.d). The difference alkaline batteries and other types of batteries is alkaline batteries are not reusable while of the other battery types are. (What are Batteries, 2014). Despite how many times the various battery types can be used, they are all made of the same chemicals. When electrons flow in the battery, it creates an electrical current that powers things. The battery
