As you know, "in the classics" the charges of the capacitor plates are equal in absolute value and opposite in sign. However, let us consider a series connection of capacitors. In this case, a charge of the opposite sign is induced on every second plate of each capacitor due to electrostatic induction. But how can we rigorously prove the strict equality of the absolute values of these charges to the charges of the first plates?
