Concept

Problem: Determine the equivalent capacitance between A and B for the group of capacitors in the drawing. Let C1 = 13 µF and C2 = 6.0 µF.

FREE Expert Solution

Equivalent capacitance for parallel capacitors:

Ceq=C1+C2

Equivalent capacitance for series capacitors:

1Ceq=1C1+1C2

The 24µF, C1, and 8.0 µF capacitors are in series:
