										Sol. C base 1 = 20 PF = 20 × 10^–12 F, C base 2 = 50 PF = 50 × 10^–12 F

Effective C = C base 1C base 2/C base 1 + C base 2 = 2 * 10^-11 * 5 * 10^-11/2 * 10^-11 + 5 * 10^-11 = 1.428 * 10^-11 F
Charge ‘q’ = 1.428 * 10^-11 * 6 = 8.568 * 10^-11 C
V base 1 = q/C base 1 = 8.568 * 10^-11/2 * 10^-11 = 4.284 V
V base 2 = q/C base 2 = 8.568 * 10^-11/5 * 10^-11 = 1.71 V
Energy stored in each capacitor
E base 1 = (1/2) C base 1V base 1^2 = (1/2) * 2 * 10^-11 * (4.284)^2 = 18.35 * 10^-11 = 184 PJ
E base 2 = (1/2) C base 2V base 2^2 = (1/2) * 5 * 10^-11 * (1.771)^2 = 7.35 * 10^-11 = 73.5 PJ
