So, I'm really confused on how a capacitor gets charged. I understand that electrons from the negative terminal of a battery flow to one side of the plate to make that side negative. However, I don't understand how the positive plate is formed. From what I've been reading, it says that electrons from the "positive plate" move to the negative plate against the electric field (which I'm assuming is the electric field of the electron from -q to +q) , however I can't visualize how that's happening. Hopefully someone can explain... been bugging me for a long time now. Thanks in advance!
