# Find the equivale

This is an infinite series and hence deletion or addition of any repetitive portions of the arrangement does not affect the overall effect. So, let’s convert this into a simpler figure for calculation. In the above figure, ‘C’ represents the effective capacitance of the infinite ladder. For the calculations, we have added a 1μF and a 2μF as shown since they both constitute the repetitive portion of the question figure. Hence C and 2μF are in series and they instead is parallel to 1μF.

Now, we calculate the value of C as, Which is equals to C itself,

So, Or, Or, Or, Or, Or, Since capacitance value cannot be negative, we neglect C=-1μF. Hence the equivalent capacitance of the infinite ladder is 2μF.
