(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A known voltage source V_0 is connected by a switch to two capacitors in series with capacitance C_1 and C_2. When we flip the switch, connecting the capacitors to the voltage source, we measure the voltage across each capacitor, V_1 and V_2 respectively.

I need to derive an equation relating V_1 and V_2 in terms of V_0, C_1 and C_2

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution
