What are some examples of combinations of capacitors?
Series, parallel and combinations of series and parallel/
There are four examples of combinations in the diagram. The following points show how to calculate the total capacitance of each combination.
The equivalent capacitance, C , of the combination is worked out as follows:
Total capacitance decreases in series.
Total capacitance increases in parallel.
3. "Parallel in series"
4. "Series in parallel"
Example with numbers based on combination 4.
