Ok,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

say I have something like Cp=C1+C2+C3 for the equivalent parallel combination capacitance.

When doing the error expression, I figure we just use the addition rule in the case above.

So, Delta(Cp)=Delta(C1)+Delta(C2)+Delta(C3).

Apparently this is wrong and I need to use squares/roots somewhere but I don't see that.

Help!
