|Energy stored by a capacitor|
|See pg. 637 of HRW|
|DEMONSTRATION: 3500 microfarad capacitor "charged" to 100 V, 18 J of energy stored. Sudden discharge; comparison to 1 kg mass dropped from 1.8 m height.|
|To the chalkboard for consideration of the energy stored in a parallel-plate capacitor:|
|Electrical energy density|
