Answer:

44.2v

Explanation:

The energy stored in capacitor, which is equal to energy required to operate a 75W bulb for one minute (60s) is

Energy = Pt =(75W)(60s) = 4500J

Solving equation energy = 1/2CV^2 for V we get

V = √2(Energy)/C

V = √2(4500J)/4.6F = 44.2V

Answer:V = 44.2 V

Explanation:We have time = 1 minute = 60 sec, C = 4.6 F, P = 75.0 W

Solution:

Electric Potential Energy U Formula in capacitor for the given data.

U = 1/2 CV²

V =

So to find energy U = Pt = 75.0 W × 60 sec

U = 4500 J

now V =

V = 44.232 = 44.2 V
