# Parallel connection of capacitors

Connecting two or more capacitors in parallel can be equated by summing the plate area of each capacitor. For this reason, the effective capacitance or total value (Ct) a parallel circuit of capacitor is equal to the sum capacitance of all capacitors in the circuit. Equation parallel connection of capacitors is equal to ever wrote for series connection to the resistance, can use the formula:

where:

C1, C2, C3 = capacitance of each component

Cn = capacitance of the n components

Example question:

In the picture above, how many effective capacitance is given to circuit?

completion:

Ct = C1 + C2 + C3

Ct = 47 μF + 10 μF + 2.2 μF = 59.2 μF

**Ct = C1 + C2 + C3 + · · · + Cn**where:

C1, C2, C3 = capacitance of each component

Cn = capacitance of the n components

Example question:

In the picture above, how many effective capacitance is given to circuit?

completion:

Ct = C1 + C2 + C3

Ct = 47 μF + 10 μF + 2.2 μF = 59.2 μF

**Conclusion:**- Equation parallel connection of capacitors equal to series connection of resistance
- Effective capacitance or total value (Ct) a parallel capacitor circuit is always greater than the largest value of capacitor in the circuit.
