#### Question

Find the equivalent capacitance of the system shown in figure between the points a and b.

#### Solution

Capacitors *C*_{1}_{ }and C_{2} above and below *ab *are connected in series and in parallel with *C*_{3}.

Thus, the equivalent capacitor between *a* and *b* is given by

`C_(eq) = (C_1C_2)/(C_1+C_2) + C_3 + (C_1C_2)/(C_1+C_2)`

`⇒ C_(eq) = C_3 + (2C_1C_2)/(C_1+C_2)`

Is there an error in this question or solution?
