Unformatted text preview: in the figure to right. A b. On the figure, identify all locations where the voltage is 1.5 V (including the + terminal of the battery). c. On the figure, identify all locations where the voltage is 0 V (including + the – terminal of the battery). d. Two students are discussing the figures they have drawn: Student 1: I think that when Capacitor B is connected, the voltage for Capacitor A will decrease so the only location with voltage 1.5 V will be the + terminal of the battery. Student 2: But, I think the wires connecting the plates of the capacitors to the battery make them an equipotential surface so each plate connected to the + terminal of the battery should be at 1.5 V. Do you agree with either or both of these students? Recheck your drawing above in light of this discussion. e. What is the energy stored in Capacitor...
