Lets say you have a system with four capacitors(c1,c2,c3,c4)

    lets say you have a system with four capacitors(c1,c2,c3,c4) all equal to 1F.

    c1 and c2 are in series
    c3 and c4 are in series

    c12 and c34 are in parallel

    c1 c3

    c2 c4

    c1234(equivalent capacitance) has the equivalence of one of the capacitors by itself. What advantage would there be to having a system in this combination?

    This is a homework/coursework question, so I am moving it to the Homework Help forums, and I deleted the answer given (although the OP probably already received the text of the answer via PM if he has that notification turned on).

    eyehategod, you need to stop posting homework/coursework questions in the general technical forums.

    Well, when you get back from your temporary ban, what would you think the advantage would be?
