1. Problem Statement Some capacitors are marked 48uF, safe working voltage 25V. Show how a number of these capacitors may be connected to provide a capacitor of capacitance: a) 48uF, safe wroking voltage 50V b) 72uF, safe working voltage 25V 2. Relevant Equations obviously C total in parallel = c1 + C2... and 1 / C total in series = 1/ C1 + 1 / C2 3. Attempt at the Solution for part a) i thought you could have two of the capacitors in parallel, followed in series by another two capacitors in parallel for b) i didnt really have a clue, but perhaps two in series? (im probably wrong!) the answers state that for part a) "two capacitors in series", such that V < 25V across each capacitor. for part b)"two capacitors in parallel with a single capacitor" what is the safe working voltage??
