If a capacitor is charged to 10V where the negative side is connected to ground (0V), when the capacitor is disconnected from the power supply on both the positive and negative sides; 1) Will the negative side of the capacitor still be 0V relative to the ground it was just connected to? 2) Say the two sides of the capacitor are shorted. Charge would flow from the positive to the negative side of the capacitor, so does this mean the negative side of the capacitor will no longer be the same voltage as the ground it was connected to previously? I'm asking this because I have components connected to the negative side of a capacitor that will likely break if the voltage rises too much above ground and although I think I know the answer to this I am really doubting myself now. Any help is appreciated, thanks!
