1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A 4μF capacitor is charged to a charge of 200 μC,and a 3μF capacitor is charged to a charge of 300μC. Both the capacitors are connected so that the positive plates are connected together. What is the total loss of energy in the process? 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution Loss of energy= E initial -E final By using Energy =1/2 (Q^2)/c The energy I get is the final energy or initial energy? I'm kind of confused. Thanks.
