Unformatted text preview: 76. (a) Put five such capacitors in series. Then, the equivalent capacitance is 2.0 µF/5 =
0.40 µF. With each capacitor taking a 200-V potential difference, the equivalent capacitor
can withstand 1000 V.
(b) As one possibility, you can take three identical arrays of capacitors, each array being a
five-capacitor combination described in part (a) above, and hook up the arrays in parallel.
The equivalent capacitance is now Ceq = 3(0.40 µF) = 1.2 µF. With each capacitor taking
a 200-V potential difference the equivalent capacitor can withstand 1000 V. ...
