    Choosing a wind turbine generator

    I'm doing a school project in which I'm building a wind turbine. The next step for me is to choose a generator but I'm not completely sure what is right for me. I expect to come up to 300 rpm as an average and need the required voltage to for a car battery, which is around 14.4 volt. My...

    Energy in a capacitor

    why is the formula of energy in a capacitor E= C x U^2 /2 I understand it mathematically, but I do not understand it if you apply it to a real situation. Is there anyone who can explain that?

    Why do we want to know how much a charge can be stored /V?

    Why do we want to know how much a charge can be stored per volt? What has the voltage to do with the storage of charge in a capacitor?
