Question

Four capacitors are placed within an 18.0 V circuit as follows:

Two capacitors 30.0 μF and 65.0 μF are connected in series with the battery, followed by two capacitors 45.0 μF and 80.0 μF connected in parallel.

** Being as specific and detailed as possible (without
performing any calculations!)**,

How the equivalent capacitance in this circuit would change if the two capacitors originally in series were now connected in parallel, and the two capacitors originally connected in parallel were now connected in series, and placed within an 18.0 V circuit

Answer #1

If you have any doubt then mention in the commant.

Ten identical capacitors, each with a capacitance of 40 μF, are
wired in a simple circuit with a 3 V battery.
(a) If all the capacitors are wired in series, what is the
capacitance of the entire circuit?
(b) With the capacitors in series, what is the total charge that
came out of the positive terminal of the battery in charging all of
the capacitors?
(c) If all the capacitors are wired in parallel, what is the
capacitance of the...

A 2.14 μF capacitor and a 5.62 μF capacitor are connected in
series across an 18.0 V battery. What voltage would be required to
charge a parallel combination of the same two capacitors to the
same total energy?

Now let’s look at a specific problem involving series and
parallel combinations of capacitors. Two capacitors, one with
C1=6.0μF and the other with C2=3.0μF, are connected to a potential
difference of Vab=18V. Find the equivalent capacitance, and find
the charge and potential difference for each capacitor when the two
capacitors are connected (a) in series and
(b) in parallel.
PART A: Repeat this example
for Vab=18V and C1=C2=10μF. What is the equivalent
capacitance for the capacitors when they are connected in...

Two capacitors C1 = 5.6 μF, C2 = 15.1 μF
are charged individually to V1 = 18.0 V, V2 =
5.7 V. The two capacitors are then connected together in parallel
with the positive plates together and the negative plates
together.
a) Calculate the final potential difference across the plates of
the capacitors once they are connected.
b) Calculate the amount of charge (absolute value) that flows
from one capacitor to the other when the capacitors are connected
together.
c)...

Consider the circuit shown below where four capacitors,
C1=1.3 μF
, C2=3.7 μF ,
C3=2.5 μF and C4=1.2 μF
are connected to a battery of voltage V=41 V.
Determine the voltage on C2. Express your answer
using one decimal place in units of Volts.

Using only 10 μF capacitors in series and in parallel, construct
two different circuits having and equivalent capacitance
of...
a) 20 μF
b) 3.33 μF
c) 15 μF

Two air-filled parallel-plate capacitors (C1 and C2) are placed
in series. Both capacitors have the same plate area, but the
distance between the plates of C1 is twice the distance between the
plates of C2. If C1 is equal to 10 μF (microfarads), calculate the
equivalent capacitance Ceq of the two capacitors. Quote your answer
in μF (microfarads) rounded to one decimal place.

Your friend claims that a certain circuit contains three
capacitors but you don't know if they are wired in series,
parallel, or some combination. The battery has a voltage of 9V, two
of the three capacitors have capacitances of 2μF while one has a
capacitance of 1μF, and your friend claims that if were you to find
the correct equivalent capacitance and replace the three capacitors
with that, you would find the charge on the equivalent capacitor to
be 1.8...

Two air-filled, parallel-plate capacitors are to be connected to
a 10 V battery, first individually, then in series, and then in
parallel. In those arrangements, the energy stored in the
capacitors turns out to be, listed least to greatest: 225 μJ, 300
μJ, 900 μJ, and 1200 μJ. Of the two capacitors, what is the (a)
smaller and (b) greater capacitance?
