###### FREE Expert Solution

(a) Capacitance, C is given as;

$\overline{){\mathbf{C}}{\mathbf{=}}\frac{\mathbf{Q}}{\mathbf{V}}}$

Total voltage is given by:

$\overline{){\mathbf{∆}}{\mathbf{V}}{\mathbf{=}}{\mathbf{∆}}{{\mathbf{V}}}_{{\mathbf{1}}}{\mathbf{+}}{\mathbf{∆}}{{\mathbf{V}}}_{{\mathbf{2}}}{\mathbf{+}}{\mathbf{∆}}{{\mathbf{V}}}_{{\mathbf{3}}}}$
