7.5 Macro-F & 15 Micro-F Capacitors

Hi. Can someone please walk me through how to do the following problem? Two capacitors, one 7.5 micro-F and the other 15 micro-F are connected in a series across a 12-V battery. (a) Find the equivalent capacitance of the two capacitors. (b) Which capacitor stores more charge. Explain. (c) Find the charge stored on each capaci


Two capacitors are connected in parallel. If a third capacitor is connected in parallel with the other two, does the equivalent capacitance increase, decrease, or remain the same? Explain.

Voltage on a capacitor

A 12.5 micro Farad capacitor is charged by a 150 volt battery and then is disconnected from the battery. When this capacitor (C1) is then connected to a second (uncharged) capacitor, the voltage on C1 drops to 10 volts. What is the value of C2? (I need a very detailed solution, with every micro-step detailed)

Equivalent Capacitance

Evaluate the equivalent capacitance in the attached file 'Capacitor.doc'. All the capacitors are identical and each has a capacitance of C.

Capacitance and electric potential

A 2.61 micro F capacitor is charged to 1380 V and a 7.79 micro F is charged to 490 V. These capacitors are then disconnected from their batteries, and the positive plates are now connected to each other and the negative plates are connected to each other. What will be the charge on the 2.61 micro F capacitor and what will be th

Nested Shell Capacitor

A) Argue that the energy stored in the electric field of such a capacitor is Ufield=1/2CVo2, if Vo is the potential difference. (Hint: Argue that between the plates, the field strength is EVo/d, where dRo -RI is the distance between the conductors. Use the equation for the capacitance of a nested sell capacitor

Electrostatic Energy

1. A negative charge in an electric field moves from a point where the potential is zero to a point whre it is -100V. Discuss the energy change and the work done. 2. Imagine a hollow, spherical, positively charged conductor of radius R that is far away from any other bodies. Draw a graph of its potential V as a function of r
