I have this problem.. When two capacitors.. (different) are in parallel across a 10.0 volt rms, 1.0 khz oscillator, the currrent is 545 mA . When the same capactiors are in series.. its 126 mA. What are the values of the two capacitors...

Alright.. now... The formula when its in parallel is : I=wCV and C= C1+C2

When in series: its I=wCV and 1/C = 1/C1 + 1/C2

Using these formulas.. i plug in the known values or voltage, omega ( which i found) and the current... I have two equations with two unknowns... and after a lot of greasy quadratics.. i have two answers.. but it says they are both wrong.. 4..628e-6 and 3.522e-6

Did i stray anywhere here??
