Capacitors in Series and Parallel

Posted in A2 Unit 4: Capacitors, AQA A2 Unit 4 by Mr A on 7 Dec 2009

The total effective capacitance of a group of capacitors in parallel can be found to be:

C_{total} = C_{1} + C_{2} + C_{3}

The total capacitance of a group of capacitors in series can be found to be:

\frac{1}{C_{total}} = \frac{1}{C_{1}} + \frac{1}{C_{2}} + \frac{1}{C_{3}}
