Step 1

Step 1

The top two capacitors are in series (on both sides are the same), the equivalent capacitance is C

Step 2

Step 2

Now, combine the top three that are in parallel

Then combine the bottom two that are in parallel, to get help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseC21 = C; +C; +C, = 3.33+ 2.00 +3.33 = 8.66 µF Cp1 C22 = C, + C, =10.0+ 10.0 EG2 = 20.0 µF 91 fullscreen
