A 50 pF capacitor and a 200 pF capacitor are both charged to 2.6 kV. They are then disconnected from the voltage source and are connected together, positive plate to positive plate and negative plate to negative plate. Find the resulting potential difference across each capacitor.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I can find Q on each capacitor by using Q=VC. The Q total will be Q1+Q2, but I am not sure what to do from here. Could anyone give me some help? Thank you
