IB Physics: Capacitors

When capacitors are joined in series the combined capacitance is given by 1/CT = 1/C1 + 1/C2 and when in parallel CT = C1 + C2 . This is the opposite of resistor combinations which makes it very difficult to remember. When you have a pattern in you head it"s very difficult to go against it.By considering a capacitor to be charged by manually taking charge from one plate to the other we can derive an expression for the...
