PHY2061 R. D. Field Department of Physics chp30_2.doc University of Florida Capacitors in Series & Parallel Parallel: In this case V 1 = V 2 = V and Q=Q 1 +Q 2 . Hence, Q = Q 1 + Q 2 = C 1 V 1 + C 2 V 2 = (C 1 +C 2 ) V so C = Q/ V = C 1 + C 2 , where I used Q 1 = C 1 V 1 and Q 2 = C 2 V 2 . Capacitors in parallel add. Series: In this case
