Guys, does anyone know the answer?

get determine the equivalent capacitance between a and b for the group of capacitors in the drawing. from EN Bilgi.

97. Determine the equivalent capacitance between A and B for the group of capacitors in the drawing.

**As with resistors start as far away from where you want total capacitance to be, so we have 3 capacitors in series, the 24 μF, the 12 μF, and the 8 μF**

**Now redraw circuit**

**Next we have two 4**

**μF**

**capacitors in parallel so we can combine them to**

**Again redraw**

**Now we just have three capacitors in series so the total is**

Determine the equivalent capacitance between A and B for the group of capacitors in the drawing.... Question:

Determine the equivalent capacitance between

A A and B B

for the group of capacitors in the drawing. Let

C 1 = 12 μ F C1=12 μF and C 2 = 6.0 μ F C2=6.0 μF .

## Capacitance:

Capacitors can be connected in various combinations in an electric circuit. Parallel combinations and series combinations of capacitors are evaluated differently.

If the capacitors are connected in series, then the reciprocal of the equivalent capacitance is equal to the sum of the reciprocals of the capacitance of each capacitor.

If the capacitors are connected in parallel, then the equivalent capacitance is equal to the sum of the capacitance of each capacitor.
