# How Exactly Current Flow Through a Capacitor? [duplicate]

Capacitors behaving as an open circuits, How can we understand the concept of the Electrons flowing through a capacitors.

• 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. – Chad Jul 27 '13 at 15:12
• You should probably edit it to make it more distinct from the other question. I agree none of those answers explain how current flows through a capacitor, but it's not clear from your question that that's what you're looking for. Also, look up displacement current. – Ataraxia Aug 8 '13 at 12:26

• 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. – Chad Jul 26 '13 at 8:55
