Thomas showed great determination during the invention process. “‘Edison never let failure stop him,’ Israel told TFK. ‘He knew he had to struggle to find answers and create something new’” (“Thomas Alva Edison”). Quitting never appealed to the inventor. Trying new perspectives and pursuing his goal, even when most people would have given up and moved on with their lives is a quality that Edison possessed.

There are some things that could have been improved in this experiment. For example, when the juice and water were added to the fruits, they were not labeled, so they had to be discovered by guessing (and a little tasting). The guesses were correct and the data was successfully…
