Homework Help: Charge on capacitors, total energy

  1. Feb 3, 2005 #1
    Can some one please help me with this question:
    A 20 microfarrad capcitor is charged to 10V and isolated. A second uncharged 20 microfarrad capacitor is now connected to the plates of the other. The capacitors rapidly come to the same pd between their plates. What is the charge on each capacitor now? What is the total energy stored in the two capacitors? Comment on your answer. Now repeat with the second capacitor rated at 30 microfarrads.

    While we're on the subject of capacitors does anyone know any good websites about capacitors?

    Or if you're looking for specifics about Capacitors I could always look it up in the books I got... or you could Google. :)
