Explanation of Solution

A capacitor is a passive circuit element that is used to store the energy in terms of the electrical field. It is also known as a condenser. To charge the capacitor a voltage is applied to the electrodes of the capacitor, and they receive equal and opposite charges. Opposite charges on the electrodes create the electric field between them. This electric field stores energy in the capacitor. The energy stored in the capacitor remain as it is until the two is terminal is connected in the circuit. Therefore, the voltage level also remains the same...
