In order to create a sacrificial anode for a science project, I need to
connect a piece of steel to a piece of zinc in an eletrolyte solution
using a wire. The directions didn't specifiy what kind of wire to use and
I'm wondering whether a copper wire will create a problem if it's touching
the iron? If so, what metal would work as a wire?
