- Q = CV

capacitors in series

capacitors in parallel

The following is the question and the solution to the question.

I understand the solution to the part where you find the Ceq and derive Qeq from the equation Q = Ceq*V.

However, I do not understand where

When calculating the minimum voltage, how do you come up with the equation V1 = V0-V2, and why is V3 not taken to account?
