 Question [CLICK ON ANY CHOICE TO KNOW THE RIGHT ANSWER]
In series connection of capacitors, what is conserved physically?
 A capacitance B distance C stored charge D voltage
Explanation:

Detailed explanation-1: -Capacitors in parallel have the same voltage, but different charge stored. Capacitors in series have the same charge stored, but different voltages.

Detailed explanation-2: -When capacitors are connected in series, the total capacitance is less than any one of the series capacitorsâ€™ individual capacitances. If two or more capacitors are connected in series, the overall effect is that of a single (equivalent) capacitor having the sum total of the plate spacings of the individual capacitors.

Detailed explanation-3: -(c) When capacitors are connected in series, the magnitude of charge Q on each capacitor is the same. The charge on each capacitor will equal the charge supplied by the battery. Thus, each capacitor will have a charge of 36 C.

Detailed explanation-4: -Also for capacitors connected in series, all the series connected capacitors will have the same charging current flowing through them as iT = i1 = i2 = i3 etc. Two or more capacitors in series will always have equal amounts of coulomb charge across their plates.
