15. The charge initially on the charged capacitor is given by q = C1V0, where C1= 100 pF is the capacitance and V0= 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 q1= C1V, where V= 35 V is the new potential difference. Since charge is conserved in the process, the charge on the second capacitor is
