3*.05 uF equal 1.5uF

Capacitors in parallel is equal to resistors in series. Therefore, the capacitance have to be added up or can be multiplied by 3 since each capacitor has the same value of capacitance. 3*0.5 uf= 1.5uf.

the total capacitace when connected in parallel

Tc=total capacitor

c1=c2=c3=0.5uf

Tc=c1+c2+c3

Tc=1.5uf
