Question

Three capacitors of capacitances 6 µF each are available. The minimum and maximum capacitances, which may be obtained are

  • 6 µF, 18 µF

  • 3 µF, 12 µF

  • 2 µF, 12 µF

  • 2 µF, 18 µF

Solution

2 µF, 18 µF

The minimum capacitance can be obtained by connecting all capacitors in series. It can be calculated as follows :

`1/C = 1/6+1/6+1/6 = 1/2`

⇒ C =2 µF

The maximum capacitance can be obtained by connecting all capacitors in parallel. It can be calculated as follows :

C = 6+6+6 = 18 µF

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
