    We want to store sufficient energy in a .01-F capacitor to supply 5-hp for 1 hour. To what voltage must the capacitor be charged? (1 hp=745.7 watts). Does this seem to be a practical method for storing this amount of energy? Do you think that an electric automobile based on capacitive energy storage is feasible?
