1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data I am trying to study for an upcoming exam, and came across a problem that I can't seem to solve. I am given three capacitors, where C(2) and C(3) are in series, and C(1) is parallel to C(2,3). C(1) is connected alone to a battery and charges until the magnitude of the charge is 4.0x10^-8 C. Then it is removed from the battery and connected to two other capacitors, C(2) and C(3). The charge on the positive plate of C(1) after is is attached is reduced to 1.0 x 10^-8 C. What are the charges on each plate of C(2) and C(3)? 2. Relevant equations capacitor is series: V(1) = Q/C(i) capacitor is parallel Q(i) = C(i)V 3. The attempt at a solution I know that the charges of C(2) and C(3) are going to be equal, since they are in series, and that the Potential difference of C(1) is going to equal the potential difference of C(2,3), so I tries to solve for V in the second equation then set the two equations equal, but I get confused trying to figure out what is the Capacitance of each of the Capacitors.
