comment When I connect two charged capacitors side by side, what will be the voltage across them?
@B Biswas That is exactly what I'm saying. The voltage across the capacitor has nothing to do with the movement of charge already on the capacitor, it tells you what will happen to new charges introduced to the system. As it stands, things are in equilibrium. As to how one can claim the capacitors are in series, the external connection (or lack thereof) doesn't affect anything about claiming that these two capacitors are in series with each other.

comment Does black hole complementarity apply to white holes?
Ignoring the "doesn't exist" part of the question, the analog here would be that someone inside the white hole can't compare their observations with someone who "fell out" of the white hole, so apparent contradictions in their observations can't be put side by side. The person in the white hole can get no further information about the person outside.

comment Constant Volume vs. Constant Pressure?
@ramunujan A nice explanation and probably at a more appropriate level than mine. I would point out, though, that for homework-tagged questions, the preference is to help the OP answer the question themselves, rather than work out/give them the answer.

comment The Nucleus of an Atom
Oh no, not even close. There's a whole field (quantum chromodynamics, QCD) dedicated to describing the force/interaction. In point of fact, the system of equations hasn't been solved algebraically, only numerically. There's no "simple" explanation like an inverse square law.
