# Tricky circuit calculating the total capacitance

**1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data**

Calculate the equivalent capacitance between points a and b in the figure below (C1 = 4.10 μC and C2 = 1.60 μC). Notice that this system is not a simple series or parallel combination.

**2. Relevant equations**

Series:

C_{T} = [1/c_{1} + 1/c_{2}…]^{-1}

Parallel:

C_{T} = C_{1} + C_{2}…

**3. The attempt at a solution**

I don’t know where to tackle this problem…
