Homework Statement:

Show that total capacitance is equal to C_eq below.

Relevant Equations:

C_eq= C_1+C_2+C_3+...+C_n (parallel capacitors)

C_eq^(-1)= C_1^(-1)+C_2^(-1)+...+C_n^(-1) (serial capacitors)

Hello @JJJAKE , :welcome: !

Physics forum is not an agency that does your homework for you. You'll have to make an effort yourself first.

So: what can you do to make an inroad to this exercise ? Perhaps redraw the diagram a little ?

(as a welcome present:) Your relevant equations are not. You'll need something more elementary.
