The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Find equivalent capacitance of this formation from a to b, C1=4.1 uF, C2=6.86 uF, C3=5.03 uF, C4=5.92 uF http://imgur.com/UwulXqg 2. Relevant equations C series= (1/c)+...(1/c(x))=1/Ceq C parallel= C+...C(x)=C eq 3. The attempt at a solution I have a bit of trouble in these sort of more complicated formations. What I know for sure is that C2 and C3 are in series, therefore C'=(1/C2)+(1/C3). I'm guessing that C1 and C' are then parallel, and that (C1+C') and C4 are then in series. If someone could help explain how to figure out how to easily tell if something is parallel vs in series I would appreciate!
