B Capacitance and voltage relationship

  1. Nov 19, 2017 #1
    Does an increase in Capacitance mean a decrease in voltage?

    in series^

    If the charge on the capacitor doesn't change the voltage will decrease. (V = Q/C). If it does change it depends on the circuit and what you do to it.

    Even adding that they are in series isn't enough information.

    You could mean:

    The safe working voltage
    The voltage drop through them
    The voltage between the ends and ground
