AP Physics B: Capacitor Worksheet
February 12, 1998
Rules for capacitors arranged in series and parallel:
charge | voltage | capacitance | |
series | Q_{eq} = Q_{1} = Q_{2} = Q_{3} | V_{eq} = V_{1} + V_{2} + V_{3} | C_{eq} = ( C_{1}^{-1} + C_{2}^{-1} + C_{3}^{-1})^{ -1} |
parallel | Q_{eq} = Q_{1} + Q_{2} + Q_{3} | V_{eq} = V_{1} = V_{2} = V_{3} | C_{eq} = C_{1} + C_{2} + C_{3} |
#1 Determine the capacitance, voltage and charge on Cx.
#2 Determine the capacitance, charge and voltage of Cx.
