A $600\; pF$ capacitor is charged by a 200 V supply. It is then disconnected from the supply and is connected to another uncharged $600\; pF$ capacitor. How much electrostatic energy is lost in the process?

1 Answer

Charge on capacitor q = CV
$\qquad= (600 \times 10^{-12} )(200 ) =12 \times 10^{-8}$ coulomb
when capacitor is connected to the same uncharged capacitor then charge will be equally distributed.
