    This is a simple review request.

    The problem states:

    Each of the uncharged capacitors has a capacitance of 25.0 microF. A potential difference of V = 4200 V is established when the switch is closed. How many coloumbs of charge then pass through meter A?

    I am not sure I am taking proper note of the "uncharged" state of the capacitor. Please review my solution and correct if necessary with explanations of concepts I may be misunderstanding (see attached file).
