Charging of a capacitor

  1. Sep 24, 2010 #1
    Please explain to me how a parallel plate capacitor is charged and potential difference develops between it's plates when it is connected to a battery, i.e. how the negative plate is at a higher potential than the positive one. Please do not post links to some website with advanced concepts and explanations as I am just a beginner.
