Textbook Problem

A 1.00-μF capacitor is charged by being connected across a 10.0-V battery. It is then disconnected from the battery and connected across an uncharged 2.00-μF capacitor. Determine the resulting charge on each capacitor.

To determine
The resulting charge on each capacitor.

Explanation

The total charge is,

Q=C1.00μF(ΔV)

Substitute 1.00μF for C1.00μF and 10.0 V for ΔV

Q=(1.00μF)(10.0V)=10.0μC

Both the capacitors have the same potential difference. Therefore,

Q1C1.00μF=Q2C2.00μF

Hence,

Q2=2Q1

Formula to calculate resulting charge on 1.00μF capacitor is,

Q1=QQ2

From the above equations,

Q1=Q3

Substitute 10
