ConceptCapacitance of a Parallel Plate Capacitor with and Without Dielectric Medium Between the Plates

#### Question

Four capacitors, C1, C2, C3 andC4 are connected as shown in Figure 3 below. Calculate equivalent capacitance of the circuit between points X . and Y. #### Solution

C_2 and C_3 are in series and the resultant is in parallel with C_4

1/"C'" = 1/C_2 + 1/C_2 = 1/30 + 1/20

C' = (30xx 20)/(30 + 20) = 600/50 = 12 muF

C" = C' +   C_4 = 12 + 28 = 40muF

C_T =(C“ + C1)/(C” + C_1) = (40 xx 10)/(40 + 10)=  8muF Is there an error in this question or solution?
