76. (a) The equivalent capacitance is Ceq= C1C2/(C1+ C2). Thus the charge qon each capacitor is 41212eq12(2.00F)(8.00F)(300V)4.8010C.2.00F8.00FC C VqqqC VCCµµµµ−======×++(b) The potential difference is V1= q/C1= 4.80 ×10–4C/2.0 µF = 240 V. (c) As noted in part (a), 4214.8010C.qq−==×(d) V2= V – V1= 300 V – 240 V = 60.0 V. Now we have q'1/C1= q'2/C2= V'(V'being the new potential difference across each capacitor) and q'1+ q'2= 2q. We solve for q'1, q'2and V: (e) 4411
