If 26 V is applied across the following network, calculate the voltage across each capacitor:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Ignore the dots, it's just spaces between the two ends

So I know that for capacitors in series, it's the opposite of resistors, ie it's the reciprocal, and in parallel it's the opposite, ie you just add them. So I have voltage across a whole network. I assume I just need to do Q = CV? But how do I add these capacitances together. Maybe that's the question I'm really asking. Ie, how to I add one parallel to two in series?
