    Hello

    How can i calculate the voltages across the capacitors at steady state.
    see the attachment.

    What Jony points you to, is that, since your voltage supply is DC your capacitors behave as open circuits. In essence, the resistor is "hanging" in the air. The only thing you can be sure about is that the whole branch of two capacitors and one resistor has 80V on it.
