Unformatted text preview: 63. (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. ...
