# Circuit Behavior

Any circulating flow constitutes a circuit. Learn how to model the logic boards in your computer, the flow of nutrients in your blood, or the daily fluctuations in the temperature of your house.

# Series and parallel capacitors

Given $$C_1 = 5.0 \times 10^{-12} \text{ F}$$ and $$C_2 = 9.0 \times 10^{-12} \text{ F},$$ what is the equivalent capacitance of the circuit above?

Given $$C_1 = 5.0 \text{ F},$$ $$C_2 = 9.0 \text{ F},$$ $$C_3 = 9.0 \text{ F},$$ $$C_4 = 6.0 \text{ F},$$ $$C_5 = 8.0 \text{ F},$$ $$C_6 = C_7 =C_8 = C_9 = 32.0 \text{ F},$$ and $$C_{10} = C_{11} = C_{12} = C_{13} = 24.0 \text{ F},$$ what is the approximate overall equivalent capacitance of the circuit above?

Given $$C_1 = C_2=4 \text{ F},$$ what is the equivalent capacitance of the two capacitors?

Find the approximate equivalent capacitance of the combination of capacitors in the above figure, where $$C_1 = 5.0 \text{ F},$$ $$C_2 = 5.0 \text{ F}.$$ $$C_3 = 5.0 \text{ F},$$ $$C_4 = 10.0 \text{ F},$$ $$C_5 = 10.0 \text{ F}$$ and $$C_6 = 10.0 \text{ F}.$$

Given $$C_1 = 8.0 \text{ F},$$ $$C_2 = 7.0 \text{ F},$$ $$C_3 = 6.0 \text{ F} ,$$ and $$C_4 = 6.0 \text{ F},$$ what is the approximate overall equivalent capacitance of the circuit above?
