Homework Help: Inductance and capacitance quick question

  1. Sep 15, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Hello I am studyin for a test and I just wanted to make sure I understand this basic idea.....


    All C's are 5 micro F
    All L's=2H
    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    For the I came to the conclusion that Ceq=5 micro F
    the ones circled in blue are in parallel, while the ones in black are n series. Then they are in series?

    and Leq=3.77 H
    the ones in blue are series, while the ones in black are in parallel. Then all of the one in te square are in series.

    Just let me know guys thanks!

    You are missing something important. What characteristics of the circuit do you need, for components to be in parallel? in series? Once you are certain of these concepts, I recommend combining components in pairs, based on these rules.
