Abstract

This study is researching the impact of the heavy metal or chemicals in alkaline batteries on general Brassica Rapa plant height while the plants are growing. Letting people know why humans need to recover batteries instead of throwing them away into landfills and the ground is the focus of this research. The alkaline batteries have all been cut to let the chemicals seep into soil where the Brassica rapa plants are placed. The result shows a very strong and harmful effect from the batteries to the Brassica rapa plants when the plants are growing over a certain period. For conclusion, the pollutants in the batteries made impact on the height, leaves, flowers and even its health of Brassica Rapa plants. The more batteries it has in the pot where the Brassica Rapa plants grows, the more impact it makes on the plants. Into a bigger picture, as people trying to protecting the environment, the base of protecting can be human need to stop discard alkaline batteries everywhere.
