Homework Statement

Just help me with 18 b.

Homework Equations


V1 = c1I1Z1. Same for V2,3,45. V = V1+V2+V3+V4+V5. V/I=Z=impedance.

The Attempt at a Solution


Maybe because of symmetry Z1=Z2 & Z3=Z4. Perhaps Z5 takes out one of the branches??? Can I get a hint?

I would not assume anything is equal to another unless the problem explicitly says that
I am following up on what YOU said not what the problem statement said
1Maybe because of symmetry Z1=Z2 & Z3=Z4

One more thing: I still don't know how they jumped from the 2nd to last line to the last line in this problem (in the answer I mean).
