Question: 503

4. Find the total capacitance for three capacitors in parallel with each other. The value of the capacitors is 10f, 15f and 35 f.

A. 60 f
B. 50 f
C. 20 f
D. 10 f
E. 5 f

Correct Answer: A


The correct answer is (A). To find the capacitance for a group of capacitors in parallel with each other you add their capacitances together to find their sum. 10μf +15μf + 35μf = 60μf.
