This tool helps you easily calculate the total capacitance of capacitors connected in series.

## How to Use the Capacitors in Series Calculator

The capacitors in series calculator allows you to calculate the total capacitance of capacitors connected in series. To use it, enter the values of the capacitors in the input box provided, separated by commas, and click the “Calculate” button. The resulting total capacitance will be displayed in the result field.

## How It Calculates the Results

This calculator uses the formula for capacitors in series:

1 / C_total = 1 / C1 + 1 / C2 + 1 / C3 + ... + 1 / Cn

Where C1, C2, C3, …, Cn are the capacitance values of the individual capacitors. The script converts the entered values into an array of numbers, computes the reciprocal of each value, sums them up, and then takes the reciprocal of the sum to find the total capacitance.

## Limitations

It is important to ensure that you enter valid numerical values separated by commas. If any non-numeric value is entered, the calculator will prompt an alert to enter valid numbers. Additionally, very large or very small capacitor values may result in less precise calculations due to the limitations of floating-point arithmetic in JavaScript.
