1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Q1= 200 C Q2=400 C 2. Relevant equations Qtotal= Q1+Q2 ? 3. The attempt at a solution Qtotal=Q1+Q2=400-200=200 C Is it possible to connect the positive plate of C1 to the negative plate of C2 and vice versa without the capacitor getting explode ?
