    7. What is the energy in joules stored in the capacitor below?
    The capacitor is shown with 10 volts on each side of it (plus on the left of the capacitor, - on the right), and C = 20 microfarads.

    8. What is the energy in joules stored in the inductor shown below?
    There is a drawing of an inductor with 7 A flowing to the right, and below is written 7 m H.

    Solution Preview

    The energy U stored in a capacitor with capacitance C under potential drop V is given by:

    U = 1/2 * C * V^2

    In our case:

    V =10v
    C ...

    Solution Summary

    This solution provides calculations for finding the energy in a capacitor and inductor. What the energy in joules stored in the inductor is shown is determined.
