  1. Nov 24, 2007 #1
    Hi there i was thinking about this question but i cant get the solution for solving it

    The question is:-
    A number of capacitors each of 2µF are connected as shown in the figure given below:
    (Please open the link below)

    What is the net capacitance between A & B?

    A. 2µF
    B. 4µF
    C. 6µF
    D. 10µF
    The equations for series and parallel combinations of capacitance are:
    Parallel; C=1/C1+1/C2
    Series; C=C1+C2

    i dont know how to use these equations for getting final answer

    Your formulas are incorrect. After you correct those, the trick is always to look for the simplest combination to combine. Come back with some work.
