20. 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= 100 µC, and q1, q2and q3are the charges on C1, C2and C3after the switch is thrown to the right and equilibrium is reached, then Q= q1+ q2+ q3. Since the parallel pair
