Two capacitors are connected in parallel. If a third capacitor is connected in parallel with the other two, does the equivalent capacitance increase, decrease, or remain the same? Explain.

Solution Summary

The solution discusses the effect of adding capacitors in parallel to the total capacitance of the system.

... 6. Equivalent capacitance of i) capacitors in series, ii) capacitors in parallel: ... Hence, the equivalent capacitance of n capacitors in parallel is given by: ...

Capacitors in Parallel: What is the equivalent capacitance of the two capacitors? What is the charge stored on each capacitor? ... Back to capacitors in parallel. ...

... Answer: As the capacitors are in parallel with the supply both will be charge to the same voltage V = 660 V hence. q1 = C1V = 4.20*10-6*660 = 2.772*10-3 C. ...
