### Parallel Capacitor Calculator:

This parallel capacitor calculator allows you to estimate the resulting capacitance in a circuit. You can simulate a system of 10 separate capacitors in parallel. Go to more sections to know how to add parallel capacitors, formula for total capacitance and steps to find capacitance in a circuit.

A capacitor is an electronic device that stores electrical charges. Capacitors can be arranged both in series and in parallel. If the capacitors are arranged in parallel with the voltage source, the voltage across each element will be the same and equal to the source capacitor.

### Parallel Capacitor Formula:

Parallel capacitor formula is voltage V_{(v)} in volts and multiply the capacitor c_{(f)} in farad is equal to the voltage V_{(v)} in volts and multiply the capacitance c_{1(f) }and addition the voltage V_{(v)} in volts and multiply the capacitor C_{2(f)} in farad.Hence the parallel capacitor formula can be written as

V_{(v)}*c_{(f)} =V_{(v)}*c_{1(f)} + V_{(v)} * C_{2(f)} +….

V_{1} = v_{2} = ……=V

The formula for charge stored in a capacitor is

Q= v*c

The overall charge of capacitors Q=Q_{1 }+Q_{2}+…..

V*c =V*c_{1}+ V * C_{2}+….

The total capacitance of capacitors connected in parallel is

C=c_{1}+c_{2}+…..

### Example:1

IF capacitors are connected in parallel and their capacitance is 8F,12F,18F,12F,16F.Find the resulting capacitance?

### Answer:

Given that

c_{1} =8F

c_{2} = 12F

c_{3} =18F

C_{4} =12F

C_{5} =16F

C= c_{1}+ c_{2}+ c_{3}+ c_{4}+ c_{5}

C=18+12+18+12+16

C=66F

### Example:2

IF capacitors are connected in parallel and their capacitance is 25F,32F,45F,22F,15F.Find the resulting capacitance?

### Answer:

Given that

c_{1} =25F

c_{2} = 32F

c_{3} =45F

C_{4} =22F

C_{5} =15F

C= c_{1}+ c_{2}+ c_{3}+ c_{4}+ c_{5}

C=25+32+45+22+15

C=139F
