Q: What is the output voltage of capacitors in series, each charged to
V1, V2, V3...
The answer given was:
A: Output voltage V = V1 + V2 + V3...
- which seemed straight-forward.
But I noticed a physicist commented, "What if the capacitance of the
various capacitors were greatly different?" to which the response
was, "If the smallest series capacitor value is much greater than the
input capacitance of the voltage reading device, the answer is valid."
