Akshay Patel Period 10 HONORS PHYSICS LAB – Capacitor Circuits Objective: To determine circuit characteristics of series, parallel, and combination capacitor circuits. Conclusion: Circuits that are of series, parallel, and combination capacitor circuits hold characteristics that distinguish them from each other. A series circuit is a circuit that is composed of components that are connected in a series. The current through each of the components is the same, and the voltage through the components is the sum of the voltages throughout the components. For capacitors connected in series, the equivalent capacitance can be found from knowing that the reciprocal of the equivalent capacitance is equal to the sum of all the reciprocals of the capacitances. Parallel circuits have the same voltage across each of the components. For capacitors connected in parallel, the equivalent capacitance is the sum of all the capacitors. Combination capacitor circuits are different. You take the sum of the
