Practice question for ECE201: "Linear circuit analysis I"

By: ECE student Paul Wonnacott

Topic: Equivalent Capacitance


Determine the equivalent capacitance in the figure below. All units are in Farads.


First combine the 2 and 4 Farad capacitors as you would for resistors in series. Do the same for the 1, 2, and 3 Farad that are on the end. The circuit should now be two 6 Farad and one 3 Farad capacitor in series. Combine these like resistors in parallel to get the final answer of 1.5 Farads.
