(a) Parallel combination of capacitors-Capacitors connected in parallel combination have same potential difference across their terminals shown below in fig
V=potential difference across terminals of capacitors c1, c2, c3
and Q1, Q2 and Q3 resp. are charges on capacitors c1, c2, c3.
-In parallel combination system of capacitors is equivalent to a single capacitor of capacitance
-Thus for capacitors connected in parallel combination their resultant capacitance C is the sum of their individual capacitances.
-Also for parallel combination of capacitors their resultant capacitance C is greater then the capacitance of greatest individual one.
(b) Series combination of capacitors
-Figure above shows three capacitors connected in series combination
-In series combination of capacitors potential difference across each capacitor is different but charge on each capacitor is same.
-The resultant capacitance of capacitors connected in series combination is the ratio of charge stored to the applied potential difference V and is given by
-Resultant capacitance Cof the capacitors connected in series combination is equal to the sum of reciprocals of their individual capacitances. Here in case of series combination C is less then the capacitance of smallest individual capacitor.
(c) Energy stored in capacitor-Energy stored in capacitor is
factor 1/2 is due to average potential difference across the capacitor while it is charged.
-Battery supply QV amount of energy during charging a capacitor but energy stored in capacitor is QV/2 , the another half of energy is transferred into the circuit resistance in the form of heat.
heat in the wire=energy supplied by battery-energy stored in the capacitor
=QV-QV/2 = QV/2
