Calculating unequal cap strings.

Howdy All,

I am having difficulties calculating cap strings. For example, I have a
.025uf cap, and if I add a .0018 cap to it (actually 2 * .00097) in
paralell, I get .0268 like I would expect. But when I do them in series, I
get .0017??!! Can anybody enlighten me? I can calc cap strings with
identical values easily, but I can't figure this out. Any info or source of
info will be great.

Thanks All,

Jonathan Peakall
