The fact that the coefficients of capacitance for a set of capacitors are geometrical factors appears in all textbooks of electricity and magnetism. However, in basic treatments there is no a rigorous demonstration of such a fact and most of the proofs are based on the Green formalism. We present a demonstration based on the Laplace’s equation that can be… (More)
