capacitor bank questions.
edit- i guess it was in the wrong place, since no one replied.... so i'll try here....
i'm tryin to make a cap bank from 30+ flash cameras (possible? possible outputs? how do i calculate that?) and i have some question/problems.
is it possible to take a bank like the above and use as a spot welder? if so, how would i trigger the spark without the trigger becoming the spark gap?
another possible use i have for it is a rail gun...... theoretically, if counter evidence isn't provided by all of you much more tech inclined ibblers
a second concern is that the caps come in at least three different micro farad ratings. would one explode if it's rating is lower than the higher ones? (the ratings are between 80ish to 150 ish (don't remember))
i rather need the weilder for a possible steampunk project that i just bought a bunch of metal junk for....(knowing me though, i'll never get around to doing it....)
