A battery is connected purely in parallel to three capacitors of
C1 = 6 micro-farads, C2 = 9 micro-farads, and
C3 = 11 micro-farads. Then, one additional capacitor of
8 micro-farads is added in parallel to the other three capacitors
and due to this, the total stored energy of all the capacitors
increases by 196 micro-joules (it is 196 micro-joules larger with
four capacitors compared to with three capacitors). Then, the same
four capacitors are connected in SERIES to the...
