The formula for series capacitance has been substituted with a formula for permittivity.

Since an admin type person will likely respond to this, I'd like to ask another question about the capacitors chapter. Why doesn't the chapter talk about voltage division for capacitors in series, or current division for capacitors in parallel?

This introduction to capacitors is good explanation. It's interesting to contrast it to an actual textbook.

Thanks to you guys for an awesome online book.

You are indeed correct, not sure why that has happened.

This is covered in a more appropriate section in Volume II: http://www.allaboutcircuits.com/vol_2/chpt_4/index.html

Uh... Bump? Over four years later, and I just ran in to this.
Also, the picture for calculating the sum of parallel capacitance is a table of the dielectric constants for various materials. :confused:

Edit: There's another incorrect picture over here: http://www.allaboutcircuits.com/vol_1/chpt_14/3.html :)
The first picture should be (and is, in the PDF) a table of the different units used for various magnetic quantities in the CGS/SI/English measuring systems.
