I'd appreciate input about this RC circuit. I believe, the more minds contributing input on this, the more I (might) gain from this excercise

So I got some results that are both correct at some time t and incorrect at other time t. What can you say about the results.

I calculate the Voltage across C1 (V_C1) using a Thevenin EC. Then with that,

I got V_R1, I_C1, I_R1, I_Rs, V_Rs (everything on the left half.)

So then to calculate V_C2 and V_R2, I used 10 - V_Rs - V_C1 (method 1 "m1.")

With V_R2, I got I_R2, henceforth I got I_C2.

So using m1 I got some weird results. 10V for V_C2 at t = 0 and -0.1 A I_C2 at t = 0.

I'd like to know if there is another way to get V_C2, without using another Thevenin EC.

And what do you think I should take away from this experience (the fact that there are correct and incorrect results for V_C2 and I_C2.)

It's affecting my graphs of I and V for both capacitors.

Thanks like a lot.
