Problem 70PE

Problem 70PE

Unreasonable Results

(a) On a particular day, it takes 9.60×103 J of electric energy to start a truck’s engine. Calculate the capacitance of a capacitor that could store that amount of energy at 12.0 V. (b) What is unreasonable about this result? (c) Which assumptions are responsible?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step 1 of 3

Solution 70PE

- 133 F
- Since the size of the capacitor will be large enough and it is very difficult to carry on the truck.
- The capacitor can store this amount of energy is responsible for this unreasonable result.
