1. ### Parallel plates potential

If i understood what you said if we were to remove the negative plate we would still experience a positive potential at it's last position due to the positive plate A, so we need to increase the distance so much that the potential Due to plate A is near zero, Thanks very clear awnser!
2. ### Parallel plates potential

Summary:: if Plate A had a potential of 9V, This means as We approach a unit charge from +Infinity to A we have to do this precise amount of work Now we remove plate A, And replace it with plate B that has a potential of -9V Again that means to go from +Infinity To B we actually gain energy, or...
3. ### Salt water and potential difference

After writing for 1 hour,I realized that in my first post i worked for the average value of potential inside the salt water,and you just described how the potential gradient is inside the salt water because there can't be a direct drop from +500 to 375V ,I leave you this paint image of my...
4. ### Salt water and potential difference

Imagine a container of salt water at 0V (Relative to ground),Now you've put in it 2 electrodes,one at +500V (Electrode A), The other at +250V(Electrode b), Normally positive ions should go to the negative electrode , and Negative ions should go to the positive electrode , But in our example the...
5. ### Voltage drop across a capacitor and resistor in series

Just one last question If both capacitor's plates were at 0V at the start,then we place them in the circuit,(switch open), The Plate b will reach a potential of -4V (but with close to no capacitance) How does the other plate(A) get it's potential to -4V too since the capacitor is in uncharged...
6. ### Voltage drop across a capacitor and resistor in series

After rereading what dale said it might have been my bad english that failed me xD
7. ### Voltage drop across a capacitor and resistor in series

Ahhhhhhh Thanks now i understand so there is like kinda of two type of things happening here first there is like the same charges that act on the wire to increase it's potential(I am talking about surface charges and it's like really really small amount of charge) and i got confused between...
8. ### Voltage drop across a capacitor and resistor in series

Wait are you the same dale from physics stack exchange (i am the op on physics stack exchange too)xDD Assume the wire have a bit of resistance so we don't start an other debate .
9. ### Voltage drop across a capacitor and resistor in series

Ok then you can say if the bottom of the battery is a -4V and the bottom of the capacitor is at -4V there is 0V potential difference and there is no reason for electrons to flow to the capacitor Is this wrong ?
10. ### Voltage drop across a capacitor and resistor in series

Let's start on correct bases From what i learned potential difference is what makes electrons flow in a circuit,So it's not only the potential difference across the capacitor that matter's it's the plates potential relative to the battery that matters too, If you have a capacitor with both...
11. ### Voltage drop across a capacitor and resistor in series

That's a possible explanation but if the initially uncharged capacitor had a potential of -4V on the bottom plate,no charges will build up on this plate anymore because it's at the same potential with the negative terminal of the battery !Making the circuit open and the chimical reaction inside...
12. ### Voltage drop across a capacitor and resistor in series

In this circuit a battery,Capacitor,and a resistance are in series. For simplicity assume that there is a +4V in the positive terminal of the battery and -4V in the negative one and let A be the capacitor plate connected to the positive terminal and B the capacitor plate connected to the...
