A 10 µF, 20 µF, 22 µF, and 100 µF capacitor are in parallel. What is the total capacitance?
For capacitors connected in parallel, the total capacitance (also known as the equivalent capacitance) is just the sum of the individual capacitances:
For capacitors connected in parallel, it is like having a capacitor with a larger plate area, which allows it to hold more charge when connected to a certain voltage, which means that the total capacitance is larger.
For this question, you would just add the 4 different capacitances together.
