**[SOLVED] Capacitance in series and parallel circuit**

## Homework Statement

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

## Homework Equations

Cseries = 1/Cs = 1/c1 + 1/c2 + ...

Cparallel = Cp = C1 + C2 + ...

## The Attempt at a Solution

The 4 and 12 micro farad capacitors are in parallel, so Cp = 16mf.

The other four are in series, so 1/5+1/24 = 1/C = 4.138mf (top)

1/6+1/8 = 1/C = 3.429mf (bottom)

All of these are in series, so 1/4.138+1/3.429+1/16 = 1/c; c = 1.678mf

This is not right. Where is my logic faulty?
