The figure below shows a circuit with a battery and 3 resistors. The resistors have values of 4?, 3?, and 6? as shown. The battery is 18V.

1) Calculate the equivalent resistance of the combination of resistors and the current in each resistor.

2) If the resistors are replaced by capacitors with values of 4?F, 3?F, 6?F, calculate the equivalent capacitance of this new circuit and the charge on each capacitor.
