(capacitance in micro farads).
Initially the switch is at the left position and capacitors C_2 and C_3 are uncharged. Then the switch is flipped to the right position. Afterward, what are the chard on and the potential difference across each capacitor?
The Attempt at a Solution
First I turned C_2 and C_3 into a capacitor with equivalent capacitance 12 uF.
Before the switch flip, C_1 is charged to 100V and has 1.5 mC of charge. I'm not sure what happens after the switch flips though. Does C_1 still affect the circuit? If not, then its charge and voltage won't change from before it flipped. And then the voltage and charge on C_2 and C_3 are completely unaffected by the presence of C_1?
