Voltage on Each Capacitor

APPH12-LM4YOY

The circuit above shows a single potential difference connected to five resistors of various values and two capacitors of identical value. Three ammeters, ${ A }_{ 1 }$, ${ A }_{ 2 }$, and ${ A }_{ 3 }$ are connected in series in various parts of the circuit.

What is the voltage on each of the two identical capacitors?

A

$9.0\text{ V}$

B

$4.5\text{ V}$

C

$3.0\text{ V}$

D

The voltage on each capacitor cannot be determined without knowing the values of the resistors.
