Finding Voltage Across a Micro Farad Capacitor
Three capacitors(4.0, 6.0 and 15.0 Micro Farads) are connected in series across a 50 volts battery. Find the voltage across the 4.0 micro Farad capacitor. Answer in volts.
Because the 3 capacitors are connected in series their resultant capacitance can be calculated as:
The solution applies the relevant formula to provide an explanation of how to find the voltage across one of three capacitors connected in series.
