Homework Help: Capacitor problem lots of help

  1. Jul 1, 2004 #1
    A 0.40E-6F capacitor and a 0.70E-6F capacitor are connected in parallel to a 12V battery. Calculate the potential difference and charge across each capacitor. I tried c1v1=c2v2 but that answer wasn't right. Can someone please help me...I would really appreciate it.

    Capacitors connected in line have the same charge,
    but capacitors connected in parallel have the same
    potential difference and the charge is calculated with c.
    Good Luck.
