Unformatted text preview: with C 1 and C 3 and thus also has the final charge q =36.0 µ C found above. The voltage across C 24 would be V 24 = q / C 24 = 36.0/12.0 = 3.00 V. This is the same voltage across each of the parallel pair. In particular, V 4 = 3.00 V implies that q 4 = C 4 V 4 = 18.0 µ C. (c) The battery supplies charges only to the plates where it is connected. The charges on the rest of the plates are due to electron transfers between them, in accord with the new distribution of voltages across the capacitors. So, the battery does not directly supply the charge on capacitor 4....
