WHEN ELECTRIC CURRENT PASSED THROUGH POTATO.....WHY THE POATO BECOMES GREEN???????
Consider set up to pass electricity through potato. When we connect ends of a battery by copper wire with potato by inserting in it. The electrons from negative potential of battery through copper wire reach in potato where they undergo in electrolysis of part of copper wire inside the potato in the presence of potato juice (starch). This process release electrons in potato and increase the negative particles. When these negative species reach the other end of copper it reacts with part of copper wire inside potato and make a complex of copper which is green in colour.
This is the reason of greenish spots in potato on passing current through it.
