Expert Answer:

When a charged capacitor is connected to another uncharged capacitor, the charge on the first one is shared by both and some energy is lost through the connecting resistance. If this resistance is zero, it appears as though this energy is lost but cannot be explained mathematically. Actually, in such a case, it is necessary to consider circuit inductance which leads to oscillatory behaviour of the circuit.
