## Homework Statement

Calculate the charge on and the potential difference across each capacitor

## Homework Equations

C|| = C1+C2+C3...

C(Series) [(1/C1)+(1/C2)+(1/C3)+...][itex]^{-1}[/itex]

Q=CV

V=Q/C

## The Attempt at a Solution

I already know that C[itex]_{123}[/itex] = 16/9 [itex]\mu[/itex]F

I also already know that the Net Charge Q = 16 [itex]\mu[/itex]C

My actual attempt at the solutions is that Q[itex]_{1}[/itex]=Q[itex]_{2}[/itex]=Q[itex]_{3}[/itex]=Q[itex]_{net}[/itex]=16 [itex]\mu[/itex]C

I also got that V3=16/2= 8 V, V1=16/4= 4 V, and V2=16/12= 1.3 V

Is this correct? Or did I mess up somewhere? This is on paper submission so I cannot check if it is correct or not until the TAs grade it.
