Can we transfer the charge on a plate of a capacitor elsewhere?
 
I know it is hard , but can we transfer the charge on a capacitor plate elsewhere? For example if i had a capacitor with capacitance of 56 μF and charged at 200 volts , if i wanted to transfer the charge on the cathode to a metal rod , how can I do it ?

If capacitor was charged in common way, there is no net charge in it; the positive charge of one plate is equal to negative charge of the other plate. So there is no additional charge in it that could be easily removed.
