Capacitor in Series/Parallel

  1. Feb 12, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    find the equvialent capacitace

    2. Relevant equations


    ceq=c1+c2
    1/ceq=1/c1+1/c2



    3. The attempt at a solution

    I know how to do some of these problems but this one has me stumped. I don't know how to start since the middle capacitor screws everything up. I think my teacher did it but I wasn't there for it and he won't do it again. Any help would be appreciated greatly. Don't worry about the charges and other specs as I can deal with that easily. Just the problem of the middle capacitor. I don't even know where to start to attempt this.

    go and look at the theory for bridge (wheatstone bridge) circuit setup to get some ideas.
