If I have the following circuit... (resistor & capacitors values are made up)
...and I hold down
SW3 until the capacitor is charged, then I release
SW3 then hold down
SW1 why wouldn't the capacitor discharge into the negative terminal of the battery? (according to the comment I posted on this question: Capacitors and simple circuit understanding)
I think I've misunderstand some fundamentals here, as in my mind this circuit would be OK.
