Physics -in a series circuit, the current is the same through all components. -when a resistor is added, if it is identical to the original resistor, the current will be twice as much as it was before. -Total Charge = Voltage Drop *Capacitance Q = V * C -Chapter 18 Question 44 Given: C eq = 1.63 mF What is C? 1/C = 1/C 1 + 1/C 2 (1/C)
