define equivalent capacitance

Equivalent capacitance is the net(total) capacitance of the capacitors connected in a circuit.

There are two ways to connect the capacitors among themselves in the circuit.  

(1) Capacitors in series

Then equivalent capacitor(Cs) is given by

(2) Capacitors in parallel 

Then equivalent capacitor(Cp) is given by
