This is what I call The Chart. The Chart organizes the basic rules for resistors and capacitors together for reference and reinforcement. I’m usually adjusting it for circumstances, but very little of it really changes. C is capacitance, R is resistance, Q is charge, I is current and V is voltage. Ceq is the variable for the equivalent capacitance of a group of capacitors, Req the equivalent resistance, etc. The Chart will be your best friend when you study circuits. You will return to it again and again if you stay with electronics. ------------------- Parallel---------------------- Series Capacitors ------- Ceq = C1 + C2 + ...--------- 1/Ceq = 1/C1 + 1/C2 + ... ------------------- stronger --------------------- weaker ------------------- Qeq = Q1 + Q2 + ... -------- Qeq = Q1 = Q2 = ...
