This seems logical and relevant to the question i posted. It helps me fill in the gap i was looking to fill. Sure it is a tip of the iceberg explanation, but that along with a paired in-depth subatomic depiction of the situation creates a more satisfying more complete gap filling.This is not correct.
An electric field is created between the two plates.
An excess of electrons on the negative plate induces a depletion of electrons on the positive plate.
When you connect your body between the positive plate and ground (or the negative plate alone and ground) there will be a redistribution of electrons through your body. Whether or not you get electrocuted depends on the circumstances and the energy transferred.
Don't try this out. You may never know the results.
