**1. Homework Statement**

This is a lab problem, I sort of got an idea, but the instructions are holding me back from answering it properly

Alright I can do the math, but in reality something is wrong with my dataInstructions in manual said:If two capacitors with different nominal capacitances, C_{1}and C_{2}(bothinitially uncharged) are connected in seris with a power supply set to some 10.0V. What will the voltage across each capacitor be?

So what is the problem? The capacitors were not charged, how did I manage to get 4.4V and 5.6V? I must have charged it up right? I know this is a stupid question but I need some confidence.flyingpig's data said:C_{1}= 3300uF

C_{2}= 2200uF

V_{1}= 4.4V

V_{2}= 5.6V

Predictions using math

V_{1}= 4V

V_{2}= 6V
