Formula: Parallel Circuit of Capacitors

Parallel connection of two capacitors

Total charge

Unit
The total charge of a parallel circuit of capacitors is the sum of the charges stored on the capacitors.

Individual charges

Unit
  • \(\class{red}{Q_1}\) is the charge on the first capacitor.
  • \( \class{red}{Q_2}\) is the charge on the second capacitor.
  • \( \class{red}{Q_3}\) is the charge on the third capacitor.
  • \( \class{red}{Q_n}\) is the charge on the \(n\)th capacitor.
