Integrated Concepts If you wish to take a picture of a bullet traveling at 500 m/s, then a very brief flash of light produced by an RC discharge through a flash tube can limit blurring. Assuming 1.00 mm of motion during one RC constant is acceptable, and given that the flash is driven by a 600 − μ F capacitor, what is the resistance in the flash tube?

Integrated Concepts If you wish to take a picture of a bullet traveling at 500 m/s, then a very brief flash of light produced by an RC discharge through a flash tube can limit blurring. Assuming 1.00 mm of motion during one RC constant is acceptable, and given that the flash is driven by a 600 μ F capacitor, what is the resistance in the flash tube?

To determine

The resistance in the flash tube if the flash is driven by a 600 μFcapacitor.

Explanation of Solution

Given:

To take a picture of bullet travelling at 500 m/s, a very brief flash of light produced by an RCdischarge through a flash tube can limit blurring. Assuming 1.00 mmof motion during one RCconstant is acceptable, and given that the flash is driven by a 600 μFcapacitor.

Formula Used:

The RCconstant can be calculated as

  τ=R×C

Where Ris resistance and Cis capacitance

Calculation:

Time is calculated as

t=xV

x=distance that bullet covers in RC

V=speed of the bullet

We have,

t=(1 mm×103 m1 mm)(500 m/s)

t=2.00×106 s

We have, RC=2
