IP Electric Catfish The electric catfish (Malapterurus electricus) is an aggressive fish, 1.2 in length, found today in tropical Africa (and depicted in Egyptian hieroglyphics). The catfish is capable of generating jolts of electricity up to 350 by producing a positively charged region of muscle near the head and a negatively charged region near the tail.
Estimate the charge generated at each end of a catfish as follows:
Treat the catfish as a parallel-plate capacitor with plates of area 2.2×10−2 , separation 1.2 , and filled with a dielectric with a dielectric constant 98.
