15. The charge initially on the charged capacitor is given by q = C 1 V 0 , where C 1 = 100 pF is the capacitance and V 0 = 50 V is the initial potential difference. After the battery is disconnected and the second capacitor wired in parallel to the first, the charge on the first capacitor is q 1 = C 1 V , where V = 35 V is the new potential difference. Since charge is conserved in the process, the charge on the second capacitor is
