# How fast would a car be propelled by this capacitor ?

Posted on 2011-09-04

Lets keep this simple.

I have a 3000 lb car

I have one of these:

Maxwell BMOD0063 P125 B33 22 63 Farad 125 Volt Ultracapacitor Module

Assuming a perfect state, How many of these would it take to propel the car to 50 mph ?

Assuming a perfect state, How fast would this propel the car assuming full discharge ?

Can you show me that math ? 30 years ago I remeber we had to convert lbs > KG ?

I asked almost the same question before however I would like to understand if dollar for dollar the 125 volt ultracap is going to be cheaper than the 48 ultracap ?

the 48 volt ultracap was 83F and 1000$. This cap is 125 volt, 63 F and 3000 $
