I want to ask a question about capacitors in parallel.
I was presented with the following question, and I want to show you my attempt to the question.
A 20μF capacitor is charged to 9.0V, then disconnected from the supply and then connected across an uncharged 10μF capacitor.
(a) the initial charge on the 20μF capacitor
(b) the capacitance of the parallel combination
(c) the p.d. across the parallel combination.
Attached is the page of the book showing the question diagram.
I am struggling to understand how the diagram on the bottom shows a parallel combination. I thought that this would be a series combination as the current can only go in one loop.
Can anyone offer an explanation why the diagram says this is a parallel combination?
