Problem 26.11: Equivalent capacitance: what's wrong with this circuit?

Please wait for the animation to completely load.

In the animation, you can close and open switches and read the voltage across capacitors A, B, and C. The capacitance of capacitor C is 1 x 10-5 F, and the voltage of the battery is 10 V. Restart. What, if anything, is wrong with the animation?
