    The images i am talking about : [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    I figured that inside a capacitor when it is a LOAD the positive charge in a conductor move from the wire to the positive plate right ?
    So, the corrent in the Former pic sould be directed towards the capacitors positive plate unless of course the current is the flow of electrons and not conventional current and similarly to decrease the voltage of the cap the positive charge must move from the plate into the conductor so the current should be directed away from the positive plate

    Am i Wrong or is there something I dont understand .

    Cause i took this pic as reference [​IMG]

    and presumed the current while charging was in the clockwise sense.

    It's that. The AAC ebook uses electron flow.

    If there is I don't know what it looks like, other than the other end being the pointy end.
