Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Please apologize the ignorant question, but I am confused on applying the discharge capacity of a capacitor.

If Farads = Coulombs/Volt, then a hypothetical 1 Farad capacitor could generate 1 volt at 1 amp for one second. But by the same formula, a .00005 Farad capacitor could generate 20,000 volts at 1 amp for one second.

What am I missing?

Thanks for your patience!

Jerry
