eq q eq C eq q + eq q Last time we developed the idea that combinations of capacitors can be reduced to an equivalent single capacitor with capacitance C eq and charge (separation) q eq . For capacitors in parallel: The rules we found were that: + 1 C 2 C 2 q 1 q V V V The voltage across each cap is the same , V 1 = V 2 =…= V . eq 1 2 q q q ... =++ & eq 1 2 C C C ... + V 1 C q, 2 C 1 V 2 V For capacitors in series: The charge across each cap is the same , . 12 V V V ... = ++ & eq 1 2 11 1 ... CC C = q + q e q q q ... q = ==

Time saving rules of thumb for 2 equal caps in series: C C 0 V V + eq C C 2 = V 2 V 2 The equivalent capacitance is half the capacitance of the equal capacitors. The total voltage drop splits evenly between the two caps.
