1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data This circuit is given: After the current has stabilized calculate: 1. The current through the voltage source. 2. The voltage and charge on each capacitor. While the circuit is active and the current is stable, the 4μF capacitor is disconnected from the circuit. 3. What are the new charges on the capacitors? 2. Relevant equations Q=CV 3. The attempt at a solution I did 1 and 2 correctly. However, I thought that after the capacitor is disconnected we will get two capacitors in a series, and therefore be able to use Q1=Q2 (getting 14.4μC). I don't understand why it's wrong to do so here, according to the answers the charges stay the same, why?
