# How is it negative???

Two capacitors of capacities $$1 \mu F$$ and $$C \mu F$$ are connected in series and the combination is $$80 \mu C$$, the energy stored in the capacitor of capacity C in $$\mu J$$ is

If it is $$80 \mu F$$ then problem is incorrect since when 2 capacitor are connected in series, net capacitance is less than smallest of the individual capacitance. · 1 year, 11 months ago

So it can be concluded the question is incorrect even if it is interpreted as the combination has $$80 \mu C$$ charge. · 1 year, 11 months ago

I thought it was a typo I'll try taking it micro coulombs · 1 year, 11 months ago
