Capacitors In Series


Recommended Posts

No, wiring them in series would yield a capacitance the inverse of which would equal the sum of the inverse of the values of the capacitors in the circuit. 1/Ctotal=1/C1+1/C2+...+1/Cn. You want to wire your capacitors in parallel because the capacitance will be the sum of the values of the capacitors used in the circuit. And that's your physics lesson for the day :D .

The opposite holds true for resistors.
