1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Two capacitors, C1 = 20 micro Farads and C2 = 5 Micro Farads are connected in parallel and the resulting combination is connected to a 12-V battery. Find (a) the Equivalent capacitance of the combination, (b) the electric charge on each capacitor, (c) the potential difference across each capacitor, and (d) the energy stored in each capacitor. 2. Relevant equations Ceq = C1 + C2 Q = CV Ec = QV/2 = (C(V^2))/2 = (Q^2)/2C 3. The attempt at a solution (a) 2.0x10^-6 F + 5x10^-6 F = 2.5x10^-5 F (b) Q = CV, Q1 = (20x10^-6 F)(12V) = 2.4x10^-4 C Q2 = (5x10^-6 F)(12V) = 6x10^-5 C (c) Not quite sure what this is asking for? (d) Ec = CV^2/2 Ec1 = c1V^2 / 2 = 0.00144 F*V^2 Ec2 = c2V^2 / 2 = 3.6x10^-4 F*V^2 As you can see I've worked most of this out, seems simple enough, but I dont know what to do for (c)?
