Two capacitors, with capacitance 4.20*10^-6 F and 5.90*10^-6 F, are connected in parallel across a 660-V supply line.

The charged capacitors are disconnected from the line and from each other, and then reconnected to each other with terminals of unlike sign together.

a) find the final charge on the 4.20*10^-6 F capacitor?
b) find the final charge on the 5.90*10^-6 F capacitor?
c) find the final voltage across the 4.20*10^-6 F capacitor?
