(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

You are to design a capacitor capable of providing the energy required to start a small motor. In particular, the capacitor must meet the following three requirements

a) The capacitor must provide an average power of 10W for a time interval of 0.50 seconds

b/ Macimum allowable Capacitor potential difference = 12V

2. Relevant equations

C = Q/V

3. The attempt at a solution

I am kinda stumped on the average power 10W over 0.5 seconds. Does that mean that i convert back into Energy of 5J or something else?
