If C₁ < C₂ < C₃ < C₄ are four capacitors and combined in series the equivalent capacitance for this combination is

  1. between C2 and C3
  2. more than C4
  3. less than C1
  4. between C3 and C4


If C₁ < C₂ < C₃ < C₄ are four capacitors and combined in series the equivalent capacitance for this combination is

If C1 < C2 < C3 < C4 are four capacitors and combined in series the equivalent capacitance for this combination is less than C1.

  1. The trick to solve this problem:
  2. when capacitors are connected in series then the equivalent capacitance will be always less than the smaller capacitance.
  3. when capacitors are connected in parallel then the equivalent capacitance will be always greater than the larger capacitance.
  4. In our case, the four capacitors are connected in series so, equivalent capacitance is less than \dpi{100} \mathbf{C_{1}}.
