1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

How many 1.48 F capacitors must be connected in parallel to store a charge of 1.49 C with a potential of 105 V across the capacitors?


2. Relevant equations
Refer to the attempt at a solution.

3. The attempt at a solution

Also, for the answer exact number, no tolerance. I tried just rounding the number but that didn't work. I not sure. Does it mean I should round the answer up to 9589?

Hi McAfee!

(i haven't checked your figures)

yes, of course
you can't buy 0.16 of a capacitor, can you?
