The answer is:

- The difference of potential (
#DeltaV# ) across the two capacitors is the same (the one of the generator); - Q is divided between the capacitors;
- If
#C_1 and C_2 and C_3 and...# are different, so#Q_1 and Q_2 and Q_3 and...# are different.

So:

**So:**

To find the equivalent capacitor of two or more capacitors in parallel it is necessary to use this formula:

In this case:
