comment When I connect two charged capacitors side by side, what will be the voltage across them?
How you are saying that the capacitors are in series? The two extreme terminals are open/ floating. Agree that charge on both the capacitors are same but what about the voltage difference between the rhs plate of 3mF cap and lhs plate of 2mF cap which are connected by a wire? Will there not be any flow of electron due to difference in voltage?

comment Will a charged capacitor discharge if one lead is connected to ground?
Asphir - as you said "the positive charge will be compensated", will it really happen? The +q charge is bound by -q (capacitor theory). If +q gets compensated by electrons from ground, then there will be unbalance of charge. What will happen if -q is grounded? If the voltage across the capacitor was 30V after charge, what will be the value of the voltage after one lead is connected to the ground?
