Question

Use the exact values you enter to make later calculations.

/>

Two capacitors C1 = 13 µF and C2 = 52 µF are independently charged to voltages V1 = 9 V and V2 = 27 V respectively. (When entering units, use micro for the metric system prefix µ.)

(a) The capacitors are then connected in parallel as shown in the diagram below. (+s on top and bottom on left side of plates and -s on top and bottom both on right side)


(i) Once equilibrium is reached, what are the magnitudes of the charges on the two capacitors?Q1=  

Q2=  


(ii) What is the potential difference across each capacitor?

 


(b) Instead of connecting the positive plate of C1 to the positive plate of C2 the two capacitors are connected as shown below. Note that the positive plate of one is connected to the negative plate of the other. (+ top on left and - top on right, + bottom on right and - bottom on left)


(i) Once equilibrium is reached, what are the magnitudes of the charges on the two capacitors now?Q1=  

Q2=  


(ii) What is the potential difference across each capacitor now?
