Capacitance equation is given by

C = Q/V

Where, Q = Charge in the conductor,

V = Voltage applied across the conductor and

C = Capacitance.

The arrangement of the capacitor connected in a circuit.

1. If capacitors are connected in series,

the capacitance formula will be:

1/C = 1/C1 + 1/C2 + …….+ 1/Cn

2. If capacitors are connected in parallel,

the capacitance formula will be

C = C1 + C2 + …… + Cn

Where C

Capacitance is represented by Farads “F”.

1/C = 1/C1 + 1/C2

So, C = (C1 x C2)/(C1 + C2)

= (8 x 4)/(8+4)

= 32/12

= 2.66 F

C = C1 + C2

= 5 + 7 = 12 F.
