Abstract


We show that the diagram describing the process to produce mechanical work from the capacitor-batteries system proposed in the reference Rev. Mex. Fís. E 52, 215 (2006) is inconsistent with the analytical results obtained in that paper. Thus, the correct diagram and the process to produce mechanical work are presented.
