The idea of our project was to build a small capacitor powered car that would be charged by solar panels and designed to go as far as possible on one charge.
Step 1: Step 1: Motors and Capacitors
The first thing we had to do was figure out the power of our motor we were given, which was a small erector set motor. We found the torque constant was 6.5 oz inches/amp, and the voltage constant was 1833 volts/rpm, and it had an operating voltage of 3-6 V. We also figured out the amount of power in our capacitor, which was a 5 V, 1 Farad capacitor. Link to the capacitor on Digikey HERE.
