Do you know Kirchhoff's Laws?

If yes, write the Kirchhoff's voltage and current law for part B in terms of the unknown currents in R1, R2 and R3.

Treat the capacitors as battery

Hi, yes I do know Kirchhoff's laws. I have tried using them but I carry on getting the wrong answer. Here is my working:

I think the mistake may be in what the voltage supplied by each capacitor is as I am unsure as to how the 2.4V from the battery splits between them?
Thank you so much.

Thank you so much.
Your issue lies at setting the wrong equation for equation 3. Revise your Kirchhoff's votlage laws.

I think you have the correct concept for this based on your calculation.
Both capacitors have the same charge, so the p.d. across C1 is Q/C1, etc.

Sorry for bumping a month old thread.



I was wondering if you still needed some help solving the problem, since I just did it and it also took me quite some time since I kept on making silly mistakes in the system of equations. However, I have completely understood it now and it was quite a fun problem in my opinion
