# In Problems 75 through 77, you are given the equation(s) used to solve a problem. For each of these, you are toa. Write a realistic problem for which this is the correct equation (s).b. Finish the solution to the problem.77.

(a) "A capacitor with an unknown capacitance is connected in parallel to two other capacitors, which are connected in series to each other, having capacitances of 3 and. Find the unknown capacitor value C. "

(b).

See the step by step solution

## Step 1. Finding the realistic problem for part (a)

Part (a)

A capacitor with an unknown capacitance is connected in parallel to two other capacitors, which are connected in series to each other, having capacitances of 3 and. Find the unknown capacitor value, C.

## Step 2. Simplify for part (b)

From the equation given, working in units of, we can get

This can be simplified to

From this, it is clear that the value we are looking for is
