Figure P16.39

(a)

To determine
The equivalent capacitance.

Explanation

The capacitors 6.00μF and 2.00μF are connected in parallel combination. The equivalent capacitance is,

Cp=C6.00μF+C2.00μF

The capacitances Cp , C8.00μF and C8.00μF are in series combination. The total equivalent capacitance is,

1Ceq=1Cp+1C8.00μF+1C8.00μF

Therefore,

1Ceq=1C6.00μF+C2.00μF+1C8.00μF+1C8

(b)

To determine
The charge on each capacitor.

(c)

To determine
The potential difference across each capacitor.
