Storyboard Text

  • Greetings, I'm your physics professor, Alessandro Volta!
  • University of Pavia
  • A frog's muscle generates electricity!! I'll call it "animal electricity!"
  • That doesn't sound quite right Luigi. I think the frog is simply reacting to the electric shock.
  • To prove that animal parts weren't needed to conduct electricity, Volta conducted an experiment with stacks of discs made of either zinc or silver.
  • Voltaic Pile (electric battery)
  • Works Cited
  • He discovered that different metals affect the amount of electricity produced.
  • In that experiment, he came up with "contact theory:" electricity is produced through contact of metals, and some metals in contact produce higher voltages of electricity.
  • Because of Volta's contribution of the electrical battery, the unit of electric potential was named after him, "volt."
