apacitors are said to be connected together "in series" when they are effectively "daisy chained" together in a single line. The charging current (i_{c}) flowing through the capacitors is **THE SAME** for all capacitors as it only has one path to follow and i_{T} = i_{1} = i_{2} = i_{3} etc. Then, **Capacitors in Series** all have the same current so each capacitor stores the same amount of charge regardless of its capacitance. This is because the charge stored by a plate of any one capacitor must have come from the plate of its adjacent capacitor therefore,

Q_{T} = Q_{1} = Q_{2} = Q_{3} ....etc

In the following circuit, capacitors, C_{1}, C_{2} and C_{3} are all connected together in a series branch between points A and B
