In an LRC circuit is it possible to have a charge without a circuit?

Much appreciated,

You will need to be a bit more specific about your intentions.

Can there be a current? well AC or DC?


In an LRC circuit? Configuration?

Since a capacitor blocks DC it is conceivable to have a configuration that possesses a previously charged capacitor but no DC path.

Charge? Well only a capacitor can hold charge or 'be charged'

This actually answers my question! Haha, even without the specifics.

Thanks so much
