Answer:The peak voltages across each capacitor are 6.0 V, 4.0 V and 2.0 V.

Explanation:Given that,Amplitude = 12.0 V

Frequency = 6.3 kHz

Suppose, Three capacitors are 2.0 μF, 3.0 μF and 6.0 μF

We need to calculate the equivalent capacitorUsing formula of seriesPut the value into the formula

We need to calculate the chargeUsing formula of chargePut the value into the formula

The charge will be same in each capacitor because the capacitors are connected in series.

We need to calculate the voltage across first capacitorUsing formula of voltagePut the value into the formula

We need to calculate the voltage across second capacitorUsing formula of voltagePut the value into the formula

We need to calculate the voltage across third capacitorUsing formula of voltagePut the value into the formula

Hence, The peak voltages across each capacitor are 6.0 V, 4.0 V and 2.0 V.
