Homework Help: A few capacitor questions

  1. Feb 8, 2006 #1
    Given a Circuit where capacitor A is serially connected to capacitor (B+C), where B and C are in parallel, I have difficulty figuring things out. Ill try to draw the circuit.

    Code (Text):


                      ---|B|----
    ----|A|------              -------
                      ---|C|----

     
    I think you get the idea. Say all the capacitors are of equal value, and one volt is applied across the circuit. How would you determine that capacitors B and C hold 1/2 the amount of charge that capacitor A does?
