I am really confused on how to solve this Physics question. I attempted the first one but is wrong for some reason.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A 7.0 micro F and a 3.0 micro F capacitor are connected in series and this combination is connected in parallel with a 4.4 micro F capacitor.

a) What is the net capacitance?

b) If 24 V is applied across the whole network, calculate the voltage across each capacitor.

For part a, i tried to do:

1/Net Capacitance = 1/(7+3) + 1/4.4 and got 3.056 for the net capacitance. However, it is saying that i am wrong. Can you tell me what i am doing wrong?
