Two fully charged capacitors (C1 = 2.00uF, q1=6.00uC,C2=8.00uF, q2 = 12.0 uC). The switch is closed, and the charge flowed until equilibrium is re-established, which occurs when both capacitors have the same voltage across their plates. Find the resulting voltage across either capacitor.

Diagram which I cant scan in.

C2 C1

Hopefully somebody can help me. Thanks

    Well the resultant stored charege is 18 or 6 microcoulombs, depending on polarity. So I will assume they are not reversed, so a total charge of 18 is stored, each has the same charge of 9.0E-6C

    V=qC on each capacitor.
