A battery is attached across several different capacitors connected in series. Which of the following statements are true?
1
The capacitor with the largest capacitance carries the largest charge. All the capacitors have the same charge, and the equivalent capacitance is greater than any of the individual capacitors in the group. The largest potential difference appears across the capacitor having the largest capacitance. The largest potential difference appears across the capacitor with the smallest capacitance. The potential difference across each capacitor must be the same. All the capacitors have the same charge, and the equivalent capacitance is less than the capacitance of any of the individual capacitors in the group.
