Equivalent capacitance for series connection:
Equivalent capacitance for parallel connection:
C1 and C2 are in series.
1/C12 = 1/5.4 + 1/3.7 = 0.455455455
C12 = 2.2 μF
C5 and C6 are in parallel.
C56 = 0.65 + 16 = 16.65 μF
A combination of series and parallel connections of capacitors is shown in the figure. The sizes of these capacitors are given by the following data:

C2 = 3.7 μF
C3 = 8.1 μF
C4 = 1.2 μF
C5 = 0.65 μF
C6 = 14 μF
