I'm trying to do this problem, its is posted below, where I have a circuit with four capacitors and I have to determine the charge on each one. Ive been trying to follow an example from my textbook but thats not really helping me. Ive been also trying to break it down with capacitors in parallel and in series, but I keep getting stuck. Anyone have any suggestions for any of this. There is a diagram of the circuit in the attachement. And this is the question:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

In the figure, battery B supplies 18 V. Find the charge on each capacitor first when only switch S1 is closed. Take C1=1.3 µF, C2=2.3 µF, C3=3.6 µF, and C4=4.2 µF.

Thanks in advance.
