1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Capacitors C1 = 5.95 μF and C2 = 1.90 μF are charged as a parallel combination across a 277 V battery. The capacitors are disconnected from the battery and from each other. They are then connected positive plate to negative plate and negative plate to positive plate. Calculate the resulting charge on capacitor C1. 2. Relevant equations Q=C/V 3. The attempt at a solution This is as far as I got, but i'm guessing I went wrong somewhere. Calculate equivalent capacitance Ct = C1 + C2 = 7.85μF Calculate total charge on the capacitors Qt = Ct/V = 0.002174 C Charge on C1 is half of the total, or 0.001087 C Calculate voltage on C1 V1 = Q1/C1 = 182.7 volts I am stuck from here though, even if what I've done so far is right, I have no idea where to go.
