59. (a) We do not employ energy conservation since, in reaching equilibrium, some energy is dissipated either as heat or radio waves. Charge is conserved; therefore, if Q = C1Vbat= 40 µC, and q1and q2are the charges on C1and C2after the switch is thrown to the right and equilibrium is reached, then Qq q=+12.Reducing the right portion of the circuit (the C3, C4parallel pair which are in series with
