# Relative Cost and Cost Capacity Fctor

1a. Dr. Brown is making a new flux capacitor. His first flux capacitor cost $100,000 and had a power level of 1.21 GW. His new flux capacitor will have a power level of 2.42 GW. What is an estimate of its cost? (Assume the flux capacitor cost varies like that of a nuclear generating plant.)

b. A new power plant has a 4 units with a capacity of 100MW each and cost $20 million. An older plant of the same type cost $10 million and had a capacity of 100000 kW. What is the cost-capacity factor?
