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

In the circuit, C1 = 18.0 nF, C2 = 6.00 nF, C3 = 24.0 nF, C4 = 12.0 nF and

C5 = 72.0 nF. The energy stored in C5 is 256. nJ.

2. Relevant equations

q=cv

3. The attempt at a solution

C12=24nF

C34=36nF

C125=18nF

C12345=12nF

q5=q12=q34=(C34)(V34)

V24=5/36

V24=0.1389

lol i donno...can someone help me out. I dont understand this. I know q's are equal in series and V's are equal in parallel but then i get stuck. Please help

Thanks
