How much should the capacitors capacitance be for my race track, car project? Answered
Hi im doing a project for my brother for christmas.
Its a Drag race track thing, I have it all planned. Buuuuuuut for the cars I am using a capacitor, and a motor rated for around 6volts. WHAT should the capacitor's capacitance be?
A high capacitance or a low one?
I have a charging spot on the track to charge the capacitor, and then the energy stored in the capacitor powers the motor for long enough time to make it to the end.(Which is only 3 feet).
Note:I found a small car that does just that but the motor doesnt work and the capacitor doesnt show the capacitance on it and I used my multimeter but it said DisC.
I will post a picture of it later if it even helps. :(
