In (Figure 1) C1 = 9.00 mF , C2 = 6.00 mF , C3 = 7.00 mF , and C4 = 11.0 mF . The capacitor network is connected to an applied potential difference Vab. After the charges on the capacitors have reached their final values, the voltage across C3 is 40.0 V.

a. What is the voltage across C1 ?

b. What is the voltage across C2?

c. What is the voltage across 

d. What is the voltage Vab applied to the network?
