Calculating Charge with known voltage and Capacitance in a network

  1. Jun 16, 2011 #1
    Calculate the charge Q1, on the positive plate of capacitor.

    In a previous step in the problem I found the Ceq to be 7.6E-6 and know this to be the correct answer.

    Q=VCeq



    I used the equation above but the number I found was incorrect.

    I am also asked these question and I have no idea what to do with them:

    I am also asked this question:

    Calculate the charge Q4, on the positive plate of capacitor C4.

    Calculate the voltage V2, across capacitor C2.

    What is the total energy stored in this capacitor network?

    You'll have to show more of your work so that we can see what's gone wrong. Can you post your calculations?
