Correct answer: 2 . 60638 10 6 F (tolerance 1 %). Explanation: Let : Q = 4 . 9 C and V 1 = 1 . 88 V . The capacitance is given by C = Q V = 4 . 9 10 6 C 1 . 88 V = 2 . 60638 10 6 F . Question 2, chap 26, sect 4. part 2 of 2 10 points b) How much electrical potential energy is stored when this capacitor is connected to a 2 . 00 V battery? Correct answer: 5 . 21277 10 6 J (tolerance 1 %). Explanation: Let : V 2 = 2 . 00 V PE electric = 1 2 C ( V ) 2 = 1 2 (2 . 60638 10 6 F) (2 V) 2 = 5 . 21277 10 6 J Question 3, chap 26, sect 4. part 1 of 2 10 points A 3 F capacitor is charged to 100 V. How much energy is stored in the capacitor? Correct answer: 15 mJ (tolerance 1 %). Explanation: Let : C = 3 F = 3 10 6 F and V = 100 V . The energy is U i = 1 2 C V 2 = 1 2 (3 10 6 F) (100 V) 2 1000 mJ 1 J = 15 mJ . Question 4, chap 26, sect 4....
