    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    [​IMG]
    How many 1.48 µF 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.

    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! :smile:

    (i haven't checked your figures)
    yes, of course

    you can't buy 0.16 of a capacitor, can you? :biggrin:
