(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

you and your laboratory team have been given a project by your electrical engineering professor. Your team must design a network of capacitors that has an equivalent capacitance of 2 microF and breakdown voltage of 400V. The restriction is that your team must us only 2 microF capacitors that have individual breakdown voltage of 100V. Diagram the combination.

2. Relevant equations

Ceq = C1 + C2 + C3 + ... (for parallel)

1/Ceq = 1/C1 + 1/C2 + ... ( for series)

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm completely lost on how to start this problem. And another question, what is the breakdown voltage?
