Capacitance Addition Formula Origin

  • #1
Hello,

Could someone help me find a general derivation of the formula for addition of capacitance of conductors? I'm hoping to find something that could be applied to a general assortment of conductors, not just parallel plate capacitors.

I look forward to your response,

Pete

If you mean capacitance between conductors, or capacitance from conductor to ground, it is not a function of the conductor itself, but rather a function of the geometry and the distances.

For parasitic capacitances in electronics see
Alley, Charles L.; Atwood, Kenneth W. (1973). Electronic Engineering, 3rd Ed. New York: John Wiley & Sons. p. 199. ISBN 0-471-02450-3.
