a capacitor C1 2.4uF charged to a voltage of 880V and a second capacitor C2 4.0uF charged to 560V. They are disconnected from their batteries and their positive plated and connected together, and their negative plated are connected together. What will the final voltage and charge on each be after a long time? They are then connected negative to positive..and same question as before.
The Attempt at a Solution
I don't really have a clue. However, I found the charge on each capacitor initially then added them together, and found the percent for each capacitor (C1/(C1+C2)) and times it by the total charge. Does that even make sense? because the answer was right. Are you able to add the capacitors in any way? are they in series or parallel? the voltages of them were the same as if they were in parallel. AH!
