## Homework Statement

A capacitor C1 (the one on top in the diagram) of capacitance 4 mu F is charged until its charge is 200 mu C and another capacitor C2 (the one below) of capacitance 3 mu F is charged until its charge is 300 mu C . Then both capacitors are connected in the circuit as shown in the figure . What is the total enerygy loss in the capacitors ?

## Homework Equations

E=1/2CV^2 or E=1/2 QV

## The Attempt at a Solution

I an not sure its asking for energy loss as a whole or energy loss for each capacitors .

so i know how to calculate the energy stored in each capacitors using the formula , what should i do after that >
