Homework Help: Find equivalent capacitance in a network with parallels and series

  1. Jun 16, 2011 #1
    What is the equivalent capacitance of the network.

    Parallel: C1 + C2 + C3 + Cn = Ceq

    Series: 1/C1 + 1/C2 + 1/Cn = 1/Ceq

    I added C2 C3 C4 and C5 as parallel and then added this to C1 as a series.

    What leads you to believe that all of those capacitors, C2 through C5, are in parallel?
