So say you a typical setup like in this diagram.
How does current flow while the capacitors charge? To elaborate, what is the mechanic that makes capacitors mimic the functionality of a wire instead of acting like the gap in the wire that they are?
When the capacitor is fully charged, the left plate is positive and the right plate is negative right? So does that mean when you disconnect the battery the capacitor discharges in the opposite direction that the batteries current was in?
