Would you please recomend a simple method for finding an equivalent capacitance of a complex circuit with capacitors only? I am having a hard time, knowing how to redraw the circuit diagram and establishing correct relationship between the capacitors(parallel vs series). Of course this causes me to get a wrong calculated value for equivalent capacitance. The example I have read so far, have few (5) or less capacitors, with capacitor relationship very obvious to a beginner like myself. My homework problems have more than 5 with lines going all kind of ways (clearly made this way to confuse us). How do I read the lines or diagram of complex circuit correctly. I thought I understood junctions splits of the circuit diagram. But I keep getting major errors.
Please help. Thank you much. Sincerely.
