Problem: Find the total capacitance of the combination of capacitors shown in the figure below.

FREE Expert Solution

We are required to find the equivalent capacitance for capacitors in series and parallel. The following equations are useful.

For capacitors in series, the equivalent capacitance is:

1Ceq=1C1+1C2+...+1Cn

or

For two capacitors:

Ceq=C1C2C1+C2

For capacitors in parallel, the equivalent capacitance is:

Ceq=C1+C2+...+Cn
