Okay...Suppose we we lift up something from the ground upto a certain height. By doing so, we have imparted it some potential energy. If we now let go, it will start converting its potential energy to kinetic energy.Now, suppose we apply this analogy to the case of a positive charge place nearer a positive plate and further from a negative plate. The charge is said to be at higher electric potential( has higher potential energy) and will move to lower electric potential, which we call the negative plate. There is an obvious change in potential energy of the charge.My question is that into what is this potential energy converted(there are absolutely no "resistances" in the scenario...Any help is appreciated
