Find the charge on each of the capacitors 0.20 ms after the switch S is closed in figure.
Charging a capacitor:
A capacitor of capacitance C is connected in series with a resistor of resistance R, a switch, and battery of emf ϵ . It is uncharged at first. The switch is closed at t = 0, then at time any time t the charge stored on the capacitor is given by
Capacitors in parallel:
If capacitors C1, C2, C3 , … are in parallel, then the equivalent capacitance is given by:
If the charges on the capacitors are Q1, Q2, Q3, .. are in parallel, then the charge on the capacitor with equivalent capacitance is given by:
We can replace the two capacitors by another capacitor of capacitance C. As the capacitors are in parallel.
We know that
Let the charge on both the capacitors be Q. As both have the same capacitance and potential (, both must have the same charge. Note that they both are in parallel.

A capacitor is made of two circular plates of radius R each, separated by a distance d<<R. The capacitor is connected to a constant voltage. A thin conducting disc of radius r<<R and thickness t<<r is placed at a center of the bottom plate. Find the minimum voltage required to lift the disc if the mass of the disc is m.Physics - Exemplar
A parallel plate capacitor is filled by a dielectric whose relative permittivity varies with the applied voltage (U) as ε = αU where α = 2V–1. A similar capacitor with no dielectric is charged to U0 = 78 V. It is then connected to the uncharged capacitor with the dielectric. Find the final voltage on the capacitors.Physics - Exemplar
