    2. Relevant equations
    Q = CV
    E = Q2/(2C)
    E = 1/2*C*V2


    I thought since they were parallel the voltage across each was the same so E = 1/2*36*106*302 but that gives me .0162 and thats not an option, .0016 is

    They are not all in parallel. Hint: Redraw the circuit to identify the parallel/series combinations.
