Capacitors in series & parallel: calculation of total charge

Calculate total charge when two parallel capacitors, 2.00(micro)F and 6.00(micro), are connected to a 9.0V battery.

Solution Preview

We have C = q/v where q is the charge and V is the potential to which it is connected.

Here the capacitors are connected in ...

Solution Summary

Answer explains the difference between capacitors in parallel and series, and calculate the total charge in such a combination.
