Basicly, I have to get charges and voltages as these switches are opened and closed on this capacitor circuit.
First, Switch A closed, B open. (C1 is charged.)
Then, switch A opens, and B closes.
Q = VC
The Attempt at a Solution
Okay, so the first part is easy. Charge on the the first capacitor Q = VC, V=5v, Q1i= 2.3X10^-5 C
Now, the second part. Is charge conserved? So that
Expanding that with Q=VC,
C1V1i = C1V1f + C2V2f
Can we say that V1f = V2f? So Vf would be 3.35v? Then charges could be found on each capacitor... Is this the correct way to go about this?
