Whoops!  Did you do your dimensional analysis on this equation???
C times V times 1/sec gives _amperes_, not joules!

Perhaps you meant to say:   Watts (joules/sec) = .5 Cp Vp^2 Bangs/eff,
in which case the _wattage_ does depend on the # of bangs per sec (BPS),
but the joules are independent of BPS, and depend on only C and V.
