This is what I understand about capacitor .Plz correct me if I understand something wrong about this. A capacitor stores electrical energy. The voltage connected to the capacitor produces + and - charge by taking electrons from one plate and collecting on another plate. And the capacitor tries to maintain a constant voltage across its terminal and it opposes any change of voltage by flowing current in opposite direction. But in conductors, a closed path is necessary so that there is continuous flow of electrons. In a capacitor since the two plates are separated by an insulating medium so the electrons cannot form a continuous path of flow and the electrons are gathered on one the plate of the capacitor and a electric field exists between two plates. A capacitor resists a volatge change by producing current. Does this means the current flows from one plate to another via the battery and stops when it reaches the other plate? then how can current flow when the path is discontinuous? What hapens inside the plates?
