1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data What is the best way to discharge the capacitor? Explain 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution I know two ways but i'm not sure if they're the "best" ways. One is by touching both wires of the capacitor to something made out of metal. The other is holding both ends of the capacitor and touching the negative part of the battery, which is probably the "fastest" way. But I'm not sure if they're the best way to discharge it.
