Can there be a charge without a current?

  1. Dec 8, 2012 #1
    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
