Question

# Two condensers $$C_1$$ and $$C_2$$ in a circuit are joined as shown in figure. The potential of point A is $$V_1$$ and that of B is $$V_2$$. The potential of point D will be-

A
12(V1+V2)
B
C2V1+C1V2C1+C2
C
C1V1+C2V2C1+C2
D
C2V1C1V2C1+C2

Solution

## The correct option is C $$\dfrac {C_1V_1+C_2V_2}{C_1+C_2}$$As $$C_1$$ and $$C_2$$ are in series, the charge on $$C_1$$ is equal to the charge on $$C_2$$,i.e.,$$Q_1=Q_2$$Let, $$V_D$$ is the potential at D.therefore, $$C_1(V_1-V_D)=C_2(V_D-V_2)$$$$V_D(C_1+C_2)=C_1V_1+C_2V_2$$$$V_D=\dfrac{C_1V_1+C_2V_2}{C_1+C_2}$$PhysicsNCERTStandard XII
