  1. The charge is the same on each of them. Where else would the electrons on the low side of the top one come from but the high side of the low one :)

    C = Q/V for each and the voltages add
    so

    100 volts = V1 + V2
    100 = Q1/C1 + Q2/C2 but Q2=Q1 = Q
    so
    100 = Q/C1 + Q/C2 = Q (C1+C2)/C1C2
    solve for Q
    go back and get V1 and V2 from Q/Cn

    energy of each = (1/2) C V^2 for each
    because
    power = i V
    so energy = integral i V dt
    but C dV/dt = i so i dt = C dV
    so energy = integral C V dV
    which is (1/2) C V^2

  2. I would not have noticed this if Ms. Sue had not said it was Physics. I never took David College.
