i have capacitors  Cx and C1 (in parallel) and then i have capacitor C2 in series with the (Cx and C1). If C1=4.2 and C2=7.3 what must be the capacitance Cx if the ratio V0 / V1 is 93?
V1 is the voltage accross C1.

solution that i tried :

using  C1 / C0 = 93
 
                4.2 / { C2 ( C1 + CX ) / ( C1 + CX + C2 ) }  = 93
 
                   { C2 ( C1 + CX ) / ( C1 + CX + C2 ) } = 4.2 / 93
 
                  substitute the values of C1 and C2  to get CX
is it correct ??

( 1/(Cx+C1) + 1/C2) / (1/(Cx+C1))  = 93
Didn't you alrady ask this in http:/Q_22047554.html

The sum of the charges on the two parallel capacitors (Cx +C1) is the same as the charge on C2
Q = CV
so you can work out the capacitance of Cx
The voltages V1 + V2 = V0

Simplifying Server Workload Migrations

This use case outlines the migration challenges that organizations face and how the Acronis AnyData Engine supports physical-to-physical (P2P), physical-to-virtual (P2V), virtual to physical (V2P), and cross-virtual (V2V) migration scenarios to address these challenges.

(Cx and C1) im parallel have capacitance Cx+C1

(Cx+C1) in series with C2 have capacitance
1/( 1/(Cx+C1) + 1/C2) ) = C2 ( C1 + CX ) / ( C1 + CX + C2 )

If Cx and C1 are in parallel, V1 is the voltage accross C1+Cx

(Cx and C1) im parallel have capacitance Cx+C1

(Cx+C1) in series with C2 have capacitance
1/( 1/(Cx+C1) + 1/C2) ) = C2 ( C1 + CX ) / ( C1 + CX + C2 )

so i will go ahead and plug the values ,,,and that  should be it then..

If you solve ozo's: ( 1/(Cx+C1) + 1/C2) / (1/(Cx+C1))  = 93
you still get Cx = 667.4 F as you did in: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Miscellaneous/Math_Science/Q_22047554.html#17871687
