a potential difference V = 100 V is applied across a capacitor arrangement with capacitances C1 = 12.0 µF, C2 = 6.00 µF, and C3 = 16.0 µF. Find the following values.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

i calculated cnet and got 847e-6f

voltages across c1 and c2 i got 47.1

now i have to calulate the energy stored in capacitor 1

u = .5 x c x v^2

u = .5 x 12e-6 x 47.1^2 = 0.013J

but i am getting the answer is wrong can anyone confirm?
