Worksheet V: Capacitor circuits. - 1 - 1. Three ideal capacitors C 1 = 1.0 μF, C 2 = 2.0 μF and C 3 = 3.0 μF are connected as shown in the figure below to a source that provides a potential difference V 0 = 30 V. a. Compare the electric potential at points A and C (Choose one): V A > V C b. Indicate in the figure which plates have a positive/negative charge. All left-hand plates are positive. All right-hand plates are negative. c. Answer true or false to the following relations between charges on each capacitor: Q 1 = Q 2 False Q 2 = Q 3 True (series) Check your answers before doing part d. d. Choose >, = or < to relate the following pairs of potential differences ( V i is the potential difference across the plates of capacitor C i ): V 1 > V 2 V 2 > V 3 V 1 = V 0 V 3 < V 0 C 2 C 3 + V 0 C 1 A C B
