(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

In the figure (link below), C_{1}= 20 [itex]\mu[/itex]F, C_{2}= 24 [itex]\mu[/itex]F, C_{3}= 16 [itex]\mu[/itex]F, C_{4}= 20 [itex]\mu[/itex]F, C_{5}= 22 [itex]\mu[/itex]F, and V = 20 V. How much energy is stored by C_{2}?

Here's the figure:

2. Relevant equations

Q = C[itex]\Delta[/itex]V

U_{cap}= (1/2)C[itex]\Delta[/itex]V^{2}

C_{eq}= C_{1}+ C_{2}+ C_{3}+ ....

3. The attempt at a solution

This was a last problem on a test that I got destroyed on, and we're getting credit for corrections but I'm still clueless to where I start. Any help is appreciated!
