<< I know that if I wire two 5Kv .01uF capacitors in series I'll end up with 
 10Kv .005uF cap but what happens when I put in a third capacitor that has 
 same ratings? does the uF rating drop by half again (15Kv .0025) or is it 
 of the original rating now (15Kv .00333~)...or is there a completely 
 different set of equations for finding this out? >>
Use the product over the sum equasion for two caps. in series. (C1 x C2) / 
(C1 + C2) Take the results of this and treat it as a new C1. Do again using 
the third cap as C2.
