## Homework Statement

In the circuit shown, C1= 1 microfarad, C2=3 microfarad, in steady state, the energy stored in these capacitors are?

## Homework Equations

Kirchoff's laws, E=0.5CV^2, V=IR

## The Attempt at a Solution

At steady state, no current passes through the capacitors, so current is isolated in upper and lower loops- Using KVL in them I(upper)=1 Ampere and I(lower)=0.5 Ampere, Then using KVL in loops with both capacitors gives 8+V1+V2=0 where V1,V2 are potential across capacitors. I don't know how to proceed further, I'd be grateful for your help- thank you.
