An ultracapacitor is a very high-capacitance device capable of storing much more energy than an ordinary capacitor. It is designed so that the spacing of the plates is around 1000 times smaller than in ordinary capacitors. Furthermore the plates contain millions of microscopic nanotubes, which increase their effective area 100,000 times. 1) If the plate separation and effective area of a 10-μμF capacitor are changed as described above to make an ultracapacitor, what is its new capacitance? (ONE significant figure)...
