Homework Statement
The equivalent capacitance of the capacitors shown in Figure 2141 is 9.22 microFarads. Find the value of capacitance C.
Homework Equations
Ok so this has to deal with Ceq, and it is a combonation of series and parallel circuits. Knowing this, I can use for series 1/Cs=(1/C1)+(1/C2) and so on. For parallel, it is Cp=C1+C2 and so on.
The Attempt at a Solution
Looking at the picture, the givens is Ceq = 9.22 microFarads. I first simplify the circuit so that it shows 3 parallel circuits, which are 7.22 microFarads, ((4.25C)/(4.25+C),and 4.92. Setting up the equation, i get C to equal something not 2.56 microfarads. What did i do wrong?
