Homework Help: Equivalent capacitance

  1. Aug 12, 2017 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data


    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I really have no idea how to proceed. Applying Kirchoff's laws to this would be quite lengthy. This circuit is supposed to be a wheatstone bridge but I can't see it.

    See on internet some stuff about the star-delta transformations.
    I don't want to say useless things, but I would apply this method here.

    Actually, there is a Wheatstone Bridge (5 caps), but the Bridge is in parallel with 1 cap.
