## Homework Statement

I was going through this PDF on my own to review for my AP Physics C E&M exam: https://apcentral.collegeboard.org/...course=ap-physics-c-electricity-and-magnetism

I was also watching this video (which discusses the solutions):

The part I am stuck on is part 2(a) (it is hard for me to copy and paste the contents of the PDF into here).

(The solution to part 2(a) is at about 16 minutes into the video).

## Homework Equations

Q=CV

## The Attempt at a Solution

Why is voltage across C0 equal to V0? I understand how this be the case if the resistor R1 was not there (since voltages are the same for components connected in parallel); however, since the resistor is connected to the capacitor in series, I thought that the voltage V0 would be split across C0 and R1 (which means C0 would have a voltage less than V0). Why is this not the case?

Thank you so much for any help!
