Resistance experienced by capacitors in circuit

what is the resistance experienced by the capacitors in the circuit (diagram) ?

i am actually supposed calculate the time taken during the discharging of capacitor using this formula -

[tex]V=V_oe^{-\frac{t}{CR}}[/tex]

what should the R there be ?

Since they are connected in parallel , would it be

[tex]\frac{1}{R_e}=\frac{1}{R_1}+\frac{1}{R_2}[/tex] ?

where R=R_e

The two resistances are in series.

It is in series. If you bend it in the middle, still it is in series.
