• Duplicate? While I might agree since its all related to capacitors in this tag so in one way or another answers or questions on this tag will always have conflict since they are surrounding one component a capacitor, I did found some answers from stevenvh on the other question u suggested. But the emphasis here is this question point out at how exactly current flow through a capacitor.
• Good Link to the video, In a practical way current does flow through the Capacitor, the Changing current as you mentioned, the whole concept of Electronics is based on the displacement of electrons, through diverse electronics components forming an Electronics circuit or Network. A capacitor looking more like an open circuit, cant be compare with a switch that cant pass anything when open.
