Series vs. Parallel circuits

  1. Sep 25, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    A series circuit consists of a 90.0 μF capacitor, a 180.0 μF, and a 12.0 V battery. Find the charge on each of the capacitors. Do the same for a parallel circuit.



    2. Relevant equations
    Q=VC



    3. The attempt at a solution
    I'm not too certain what the difference is in finding the charge between a parallel and series circuit.
