Question: The problem shows a circuit with 2 capacitors in series and on one side of the circuit: C1 = 8.2 micro-F, C2 = 22 micro-F. Together, those two capacitors are in parallel with C3, which = 15 micro-F. The question asks what is the energy stored in each capacitor, if the circuit is connected to a 9.0 V battery.

The possible answers are:
C1 = 1.8 x 10^-4
C2 = 6.6 x 10^-5
C3 = 6.1 x 10^-4
