    [attachmentid=640] I GOT THIS QUESTION AM STUCK ON PLEASE HELP

    this is for the attachment

    in a pratical circuit with three different capacitors in parallel ( say 10 uF , 100uF and 1uF ) show how, you think, the three currents would change.

    Attacment







    Attacment note
    ( Wher the scales are not linear, as the graph is to show relative currents and time)
    THANKS

    Since capacitance in parallel can be added together, for the purpose of your analysis you should be able to replace the three capacitors with one capacitor that is the sum of the three values. In this case, 100+10+1 = 111uF.

    yep hgmjr is right. It should only be 1 graph line (do the graph of 111uF cap. good luck :)
