1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data C2<C2<C3<C4 for the capacitor combination shown. What is C_eq? a) less than C1 b) more than C4 c) between C2 & C3 d) less than C2 e) any value since it depends on the voltage applied 2. Relevant equations Capacitors in series: 1/Ceq = 1/C1 + 1/C2 +... 1/Cn 3. The attempt at a solution The answer key says (a) but I don't see how that works. I plugged in some numbers, for example with 4, 3, 2, 1 for the four capacitors and 5, 4, 3, 2 and for the former it's between C2 and C3 but for the latter it's greater than C4 so it seems like (e) would be the better answer.
