Voltage across Capacitors

  1. Feb 5, 2014 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Find Vy(t) in terms of t, where Is=10uA, C1=4000pF, C2=1000pF

    _Vx_____||___ Vy_||____
    | C1 C2 |
    | |
    | |
    Is Up |
    | |
    | |
    | |
    ______________________

    2. Relevant equations

    Vx(t)=Is*t/Ceq




    3. The attempt at a solution

    I tried using voltage divider by capacitors, so Vy=Vx*c1/(c1+c2) but I dont think that this is right.

    Your figure is incomprehensible to me.

    There's supposed to be a wire going down on the right. Also, the current source Is is pointing upwards

    Right. If you want to create unmangled ascii drawings, consider wrapping them in "
    Code (Text):
    " tags.  Use the "Advanced" editing panel and find the "code" icon.
