Main Question or Discussion Point

hi there , I Have a Question For You, I`m a 16 Year Old Girl From Iran And This Is My first Time That I`m Visiting Your Website,
I know How To Identify parallel and series Capacitors in Simple Electrical circuits, But Can You Help Me To Know More About It , Esp. In Complex circuits?

Maybe this link will help: I think in more complex circuitry such as in tuned circuits, inductors and capacitors in series or parallel, you could theoretically measure phase lead and lag and derive the capacitance that way. Here is the link. Good luck in your studies! Take it all the way to a Phd!

The All About Circuits site is praised for clear introductions to basic electronics concepts. Go to chapter five for series and parallel: http://www.allaboutcircuits.com/vol_1/chpt_5/1.html and chapter 13 covers capacitors. The site also has a forum for questions, if after reading those chapters anything isn't clear.
