Question:

A 21 V battery is connected across capacitors of capacitances C1 = C6 = 4.0 {eq}\mu F {/eq} and C3 = C5 = 2.5 {eq}\mu F {/eq}, C2 = 2.5 {eq}\mu F {/eq}, C4 = 4.0 {eq}\mu F {/eq}. What is the potential V3 across on capacitor 3?

Voltage source

Voltage sources are the most common sources, which deliver electrical power. This voltage source may be Dc or Ac. If the voltage source is constant, i.e., time-invariant, it is called a dc voltage source, for example, a battery. When the voltage source is alternating in nature, it is called an AC voltage source.

Given data:

  • the magnitude of the voltage source is: {eq}V = 21{\rm{V}} {/eq}
  • The value of capacitances is {eq}{C_1} = {C_{_6}} = 4.0\,{\rm{\mu F =...
