I understand the situation when we charge a capacitor using a battery and a resistor placed in between serially placed !! V = iR + Q/C where we write i = dQ/dt whereas, V is voltage of battery R is resistance of resistor Q is charge on capacitor C is capacitance of capacitor i is current But what happens when we connect a capacitor directly to a battery , nothing in between ?? Can somebody explain this qualitatively and also quantitatively !!
