Find the equivalent capacitance for the combination of capacitors shown in Figure 5.3.4(a)

Figure 5.3.4 (a) Capacitors connected in series and in parallel

Solution:

Since C1 and C2 are connected in parallel, their equivalent capacitance C12 is given by

Figure 5.3.4 (b) and (c) Equivalent circuits.

Now capacitor C12 is in series with C3, as seen from Figure 5.3.4(b). So, the equivalent
capacitance C123 is given by
