Two identical capacitors are hooked in series to a 16.6 V emf. If the charge stored on any one of the capacitors is 0.88 micro-Coulombs after the capacitors are fully charged, what is the capacitance of either one of the capacitors?

  • Physics -

    The charge on each is the same.
    The voltage on each is half the battery = 8.3 volts

    C = q/V

    C = .88 *10^-6 /8.3
