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
