The battery has a potential difference of 20 V. Find: a. the equivalent capacitance of all of the capacitors and b. the charge stored on that equivalent capacitance. Find the potential across and charge on c. capacitor 1, d. #2, and e. #3.

See paint file for an attempt at a diagram.

2. Relevant equations

q = C V

3. The attempt at a solution

I have done parts a and b, but I don't know how to go from there.

I got C_{eq}= 3 x 10^{-6}F

and q = 6 x 10^{-5}C

Once I have the equivalent capacitance, does that help me with parts c, d, and e? Or do I use the individual capactitances(and if so, with what q and V if I have to find both)?
