what should be a simple capacitor question. Hello, I have a question I have been pondering for a bit, me thinks it should be simple, but I cannot seem to get it straight. Imagine two capacitors leg to leg. each has 10 farads. Each is charged to 100 volts. Each should have a charge of 1000 coulombs. Now we reduce the capacitance of one of the capacitors to 1 farad. by way of equation Q=VC, and knowing that charge is conserved, we know that this capacitor now stands at V=1000 F=1 C=1 so now we have two capacitors one is at V=1000 C=1 Q=1000 The other at V=100 C=10 Q=1000. Because of the voltage difference, they will want to equalize. What do they end up at for V,C and Q?
