Three capacitors with C1=C2=C3= 10.00 uF are connected to battery with voltage V= 194 V. What is the voltage across capacitor C1

  • physics -

    If the capacitors are connected in series:
    V1 = V2 = V3 = 194/3 = 64.67 Volts.

    If they are connected in parallel:
    V1 = V2 = V3 = 194 Vols.

    The above answer has a calculation mistake..it should be 6.467 when in series. the answer for capacitors connected in parallel is correct.
