Hi, Please watch the following video: If the capacitor did store charge on metal plates, like we believe today, in opposition to Steinmetz, how come no spark was produced when the metal plates touched? This must mean the glass is storing electrical energy, and that the metals do not carry an electrical charge! The more I read on electrical phenomenon, the more Steinmetz makes sense! To quote: "Unfortunately, to large extent in dealing with dielectric fields the prehistoric conception of the electrostatic charge (electron) on the conductor still exists, and by its use destroys the analogy between the two components of the electric field, the magnetic and the dielectric, and makes the consideration of dielectric fields unnecessarily complicated." Steinmetz continues, "There is obviously no more sense in thinking of the capacity current as current which charges the conductor with a quantity of electricity, than there is of speaking of the inductance voltage as charging the conductor with a quantity of magnetism. But the latter conception, together with the notion of a quantity of magnetism, etc., has vanished since Faraday's representation of the magnetic field by lines of force."
