23. (a) In this situation, capacitors 1 and 3 are in series, which means their charges are necessarily the same: () ( ) 13 1.00 F 3.00 F 12.0V 9.00 C. 1.00 F+3.00 F CCV qq CC µµ µ == = = + (b) Capacitors 2 and 4 are also in series: ( ) 24 2.00 F 4.00 F 12.0V 16.0 C. 2.00 F 4.00 F = = ++ (c) 31 9.00 C. (d) 42 16.0 C. (e) With switch 2 also closed, the potential difference V 1 across C 1 must equal the potential difference across C 2 and is ( ) 34 1 1234 3.00 F 4.00 F 12.0V 8.40V. 1.00 F 2.00 F 3.00 F 4.00 F
