- Homework Statement
- A charged capacitor c1= 12uF with voltage 4 volt is connected to uncharged capacitor c2=4uF and a resistance of 4 ohm as shown in the diagram . total heat generated across resistance is H upto a time interval t0 if at t=t0 voltage across C1 is 3V then value of H/4 is

- Relevant Equations
- Energy conservation

I tried to conserve the charge on the left plates of both the capacitors as intially the total charge on both is 48 and at t=t0 the total charge is 36(on c1) +4V(V is the potential across c2) so i got V=3 and then i conserved the energy

Initial energy on both capacitor = final energy on both + heat due to resistor but then i got H = 26 but as per the answer given H should be 24 please tell me where am i wrong

Initial energy on both capacitor = final energy on both + heat due to resistor but then i got H = 26 but as per the answer given H should be 24 please tell me where am i wrong
