Question 1:


A company specialized in electronic equipment has been hired to develop a large-scale energy storage system using capacitors. Among several components, two distinct capacitors were chosen for feasibility tests. Capacitor A has a capacitance of 20μF and capacitor B has a capacitance of 50μF. During the tests, both capacitors are charged with the same potential difference (U) of 100V. The team of engineers wants to better understand the behavior of these capacitors before choosing the best component for the project. a) Calculate the amount of charge stored in each capacitor. b) Determine which capacitor stores a greater amount of capacitive energy (electrical potential energy). c) Considering the need to store the greatest amount of energy possible, which capacitor would be the best choice to compose the system? Justify your answer.

Question 4:


In the universe, stellar evolution is a determining factor for the origin and distribution of chemical elements and for the emergence of solar and planetary systems. Suppose you are an astronomer studying a newly discovered star in a distant galaxy, and that star will go through all the stellar phases until its death. (a) Describe each of the main phases of the evolution of this star, from its formation from a cloud of gas and dust to its death as a white dwarf, neutron star, or black hole. (b) Explain how chemical elements are produced and distributed throughout this process. (c) Evaluate the possible implications of this stellar evolution on the emergence of planetary systems and the existence of life, considering the necessary conditions for the formation of solar and planetary systems.
