Wow, thank you so much for your fast responses!! I should tell you that my father is a mechanical engineer and I've been leaning towards going into electrical when I graduate from high school. We have a mess of small motors, boards, various types of batteries, capacitors, inductors and resistors in our garage so my friend and my friend and I always like to mess around with them. We're to try to power a very small 6V motor with capacitors.
My father actually gave us a ?regulator chip? for the battery so it should only be 5V. We took a 24ohms resistor for the capacitors (as Tony said) but have yet to decide on which capacitors to use. I found they make super capacitors - would that be more ideal to hold a charge for a short amount of time? http://www.alibaba.com/product-gs/385963561/super_capacitor_5V_1F.html was one in particular I was thinking about ordering since Tony mentioned it needed to match the working voltage. How many would I need to place in parallel, or should I say how do I figure out how many I need?
I tried the link you sent me Tony but it didn't seem to work, but thank you!!
I will send you a video when we can get this working. Thank you all so very much.
