when current is flowing through a capacitor, say from left to right ,what and how is the potential developed across the capacitor.negative/positive?
To d.c., once it is fully charged.Originally posted by Brandon@Apr 24 2005, 04:22 PM
Current can't flow through a cap. A Cap is an open circuit.
And, assuming a step function, the initially high current will reduce to zero over the same time.When a voltage is applied to a cap, the cap will charge up to that voltage in a time span related to the ... value of the cap ... and the resistance between the cap and the voltage source.
