August 18, 2010 University Physics, Chapter 24 28 Capacitors in Series (1) ! Consider a circuit with three capacitors wired in series ! The positively charged plate of C 1 is connected to the positive terminal of the battery ! The negatively charge plate of C 1 is connected to the positively charged plate of C 2 ! The negatively charged plate of C 2 is connected to the positively charge plate of C 3 ! The negatively charge plate of

Unformatted text preview: C 3 is connected to the negative terminal of the battery ! The battery produces an equal charge q on each capacitor because the battery induces a positive charge on the positive place of C 1 , which induces a negative charge on the opposite plate of C 1 , which induces a positive charge on C 2 , etc . .. key point for capacitors in series Thursday, September 23, 2010...
