# Question: Repeat Exercise 67 assuming instead that the capacitors are instead

Repeat Exercise 67 assuming, instead, that the capacitors are, instead, connected in parallel.

In exercise A capacitor (5.70μF) is connected in a series arrangement with a second capacitor (2.30μF) and a 12-V battery.

(a) How much charge is stored on each capacitor?

(b) What is the voltage drop across each capacitor? The battery is then removed, leaving the two capacitors isolated.

(c) If the smaller capacitor’s capacitance is now doubled, by how much does the charge on each and the voltage across each change?

## Relevant Questions

(a) At one-third the original distance from a positive point charge, by what factor is the electric potential changed: (1) 1/3, (2) 3, (3) 1/9, or (4) 9? Why? (b) How far from a +1.0-μC charge is a point with an electric ...If you cut a long wire in half, what would you have to do to its diameter in order to keep its resistance constant? Explain your reasoning. To move charges in metallic wires, an internal electric field must exist in the wire. In such a wire, are the electric field and the electric cur-rent in the same or opposite directions? Explain. A battery labeled 12.0 V supplies 1.90 A 6.00-Ω to a resistor (Fig. 17.17). (a) What is the terminal voltage of the battery? (b) What is its internal resistance? The wire in a heating element of an electric stove burner has a 0.75-m effective length and a 2.0 x 10-6 ∙ m2 cross-sectional area. (a) If the wire is made of iron and operates at 380oC, what is its operating resistance? ...Post your question
