Theories on Series and Parallel capacitors

  1. Feb 28, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    1.When three different capacitors are connected in parallel as in figure 2 in the lab manual: (Choose all relevant answers below)

    2.When three different capacitors are connected in series as in figure 1 in the lab manual: (Choose all relevant answers below)

    a. The sum of the potentials across each capacitor is zero

    b. The magnitude of the charges on each conductor is the same

    c. the potential across each capacitor is the same

    d. The sum of the potentials across each capacitor is V

    e. The sum of the charges on all positive conductors in each capacitor equals the charge supplied by the battery



    2. Relevant equations

    theory question

    3. The attempt at a solution

    V is same across each capacitors in parallel but not it series.
