Question

# Three uncharged capacitors of capacitance $$C_1, C_2$$ and $$C_3$$ are connected to one another as shown in figure. The potential at O will be :

A
3V
B
4911V
C
4V
D
311V

Solution

## The correct option is A $$\dfrac {49}{11}V$$As the capacitors are uncharged so total charge of system is zero. i.e,$$q_1+q_2+q_3=0$$or $$C_1(V_1-V_O)+C_2(V_2-V_O)+C_3(V_3-V_O)=0$$or $$60(6-V_O)+20(2-V_O)+30(3-V_O)=0$$or $$36-6V_O+4-2V_O+9-3V_O=0$$or $$11 V_O=49 \Rightarrow V_O=\dfrac{49}{11} V$$PhysicsNCERTStandard XII
