Background of the Study

There are lots of abundant resources in this world that we can utilize to make something useful about it, such

as the salt water and vinegar. Salt water can refer to a solution of salt and water, or waters coming from the oceans. It

is said to be that salt water is not safe for drinking for it contains a high concentration salt that may harm the health of

a person (The Gale Group [TGG], 2003). Moreover, the vinegar has already been proven its use for our daily activities.

Vinegar is used in cooking and also in cleaning, vinegar contains a very high acidic property enabling it to easily

dissolve dirt.

Salt water, aside from being known as an ordinary unusable substance which can be simply found from the

oceans, was already found out to have the potential of being an energy source. According to the American Chemical

Society Newsletter, salt water is not just an electrolyte. It is really a "catholyte an electrolyte and cathode joined. In

batteries, the electrolyte is the part that enables an electrical charge to stream between the cathode and anode. A

steady stream of seawater into and out of the battery gives the sodium particles and water in charge of creating a

charge" (as cited by Treacy, 2017).

Vinegar on the other hand, is not just popular by its use in cooking and cleaning, it is also an alternative source

of energy. Vinegar also makes a good electrolyte, because it contains acetic acid. You can use copper for the anode,

but zinc makes a better cathode than aluminium; if you don't have a zinc strip, use a galvanized nail, which is coated

with zinc. You should get close to a volt from this cell (Deziel, 2017).

As you can envision of a nation that is spread over more than 7,000 islands, many individuals in the Philippines

aren't snared to the power network, so a typical light source is the moderately unsafe lamp oil light. In this study, the

researchers aim to test the effectiveness of salt water and vinegar solution as an alternative component to improvised

liquid batteries, and as well as to determine its acceptability to the residents of Brgy. San Fernando Palo, Leyte.
