Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well i do hope you know that when capacitors are connected in series, they store exactly the same amount of charge.. i can prove it.. but.. the proof must be available in your textbook :P.. so anyways.. find out the equivalent capacitance.. nd 15V comes across this equivalent capacitance, and now using the basic capacitor formula, calculate the charge stored by it..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The joint capacitance = product * sum = (7 * 15)(7 + 15) = 4.773 microfarads. Q = CV = 4.773 * 15 microcoulombs. This is the charge stored on each capacitor.
