Homework Help: What charge appears on the plates of a 6.0-μF capacitor when it is charged to 40 V?

  1. Jun 24, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    What charge appears on the plates of a 6.0-μF capacitor when it is charged to 40 V?


    2. Relevant equations

    q=CV

    3. The attempt at a solution

    q= CV
    q=(6microF)*(40V)
    q=240microC

    am I right here??

    thanks!
