Capacitance in series and parallel circuits examples & problems

What is capacitance? “Capacitance is the amount of charge that a capacitor can store per unit of voltage across its plates.”It is denoted by C.That is capacitance is a measure of a capacitor’s ability to store charge.The more charge per unit of voltage that a capacitor can store,the greater its capacitance,its formula is given as: C=Q/V Where C is capacitance,Q ...
