Question
A prankster applies 450 V to an $80.0 \textrm{ }\mu\textrm{F}$ capacitor and then tosses it to an unsuspecting victim. The victim’s finger is burned by the discharge of the capacitor through 0.200 g of flesh. What is the temperature increase of the flesh? Is it reasonable to assume no phase change?

$\Delta T = 11.6\textrm{C}^\circ$
