The 100 F capacitor will be totally wasted. Parallel and series capacitorssummary PHY2049: Chapter 25 2 Two capacitor in series C eq even smaller than smaller of the two n capacitors in series C eq even smaller than smallest of all smaller of two (continued) 2 1 1 1 1 C C C eq + = 2 1 2 2 2 1 2 1 / 1 C C C C C C C C C eq < + = + = L + + + = 3 2 1 1 1 1 1 C C C C eq less than 1 1 1 1 C C eq > 1 C C eq < smallest PHY2049: Chapter 25 3 Four 1 F in parallel. Find C eq. Four 1 F in series. Find C eq. 1.3 F and 2.0 F in series.
