How do you calculate the amount of joules stored in a capacitor bank?

Select as Best AnswerUndo Best Answer

its a pretty simple formula

J=V2/2(F) remember its in farads ex. 100uf would be .0001f
so you just take the rated voltage square it, divide that by two, then multiply by the capacity in farads

but theres also a much much easier way

So you intended it to look like this? J=V2/2(F)

woot your moving must be a hassle transferring that workshop of yours cant wait to see another one of your cool hv instructable. i recently got enough capacitors for a 150kv marx generator and have gotten a bit of audio modulation with a 555 flyback (before i blew the chip)

It is a real pain, I had to pick up like a thousand of bits of electronics, componets, equipment, scrap metal, and loads of random stuff, lol It has been 4-6 weeks now, and my stuff is still in boxes :-( Nice work you have done! I think there is a way to do audio modulation with the 555 timer without harming it, but I don't know for sure..

Just a guess, but would a transistor/MOSFET bank do the trick?

V***y (not disclosing name for sample security purposes, but you know of them) has not blacklisted me yet and I've sampled a mind blowing amount of stuff from them in a short amount of time. (I even got some Kv / KA puck diodes from them, 5lbs shipping weight)

(I laughed a bit, thanks) You confirmed my suspicions, but some compromises are needed in the advancement of science.
I salute you!
