Equivalent Capacitance

  1. Jul 7, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Find the equivalent capacitance of the picture in the attachment file circuit.jpg

    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution

    The circuit is neither in parallel or series. I tried breaking it up into series and parallel but it seem too easy to be correct. Any tips on solving this?

    Since the circuit capacitances are not symmetric, you may just need to do it the brute force way, and write the KCL equations.
