Series / Parallel Capacitor Calculator

The calculators below calculate series or parallel combinations of capacitors. Enter the capacitor value and press 'Add to Total'. Repeat until all capacitors have been entered. Press 'Clear Total' to start a new calculation.

Capacitors in Series - Calculate Total:

Total C = 0 Farads

Capacitors in Parallel - Calculate Total:

Total C = 0 Farads


Capacitors in Series: (1/CTOTAL) = (1/C1) + (1/C2) + (1/C3) .....

Capacitors in parallel: CTOTAL = C1 + C2 + C3 .....
