- Homework Statement
- Find the equivalent capacitance between points x and y in the diagram below. Assume that C2 = 10 µF and that the other capacitors are all 4.0 µF.

- Relevant Equations
- in series: 1/C = 1/C1 + 1/C2

in parallel: C = C1 + C2

Why is it that, due to symmetry, ∆V2 = 0 and ∆V1 = ∆V4 = ∆V5 = ∆V3? I don't really understand the reasoning behind the simplification. Thank you.
