Six identical capacitors with capacitance are connected as shown in FIGURE .

a. What is the equivalent capacitance of these six capacitors?

b. What is the potential difference between points and ?

a.

b. Zero.

We have given the Six identical capacitors with capacitance are connected as shown in FIGURE .

We need to find the equivalent capacitance of these six capacitors.

We have is three sets in parallel of two capacitors each coupled in series. The capacitance of the sets in series will be each.

And so the capacitance of three such sets in parallel will be

.

We need to find the potential difference between points and .

As the capacitors are of the same capacitance , there will be no potential difference between points and . We can see this in the symmetry of the position of these points, between the two same capacitance capacitors.
