Identifying parallel and series capacitors for capacitor system with dieletric inserted

The OP had posted this question with large images and lack of MathJax formatting. I have edited it and made it much more presentable. There is a very relevant and conceptual question at the end of the OP's text. If the community could help me reopen it, that'd be excellent. Thanks.

  • $\begingroup$ Honestly, if the goal is to edit this question into on-topicness, I think there's a whole lot of work left to do. If there is a relevant conceptual question somewhere in the post, starting with a screenshot of a problem set is not very convincing. That might be fine if it was OP editing, but if you want to rescue an old thread, there's much more to do there. $\endgroup$ Commented Sep 3, 2021 at 10:56

Your edit automatically enqueued the question for reopen review - it used to be the case that every first edit after closure did that, but the recent changes to review queues included the introduction of a checkbox with which you can mark your edit as significant enough to warrant reopen review. There is therefore no need to make separate meta posts about questions you have edited - just tick the box.

The reopen review you triggered concluded 3:0 unanimously with leave closed.
