Okay here goes, I've read different things online about charging a capacitor so I just want to clear this up once and for all. When you are charging a capacitor, I always understood it as the electrons shifting from the wire connected to the negative end of the battery onto the plate, and the electrons on the positive end of the plate shifting away, to ultimately give a positive and negative charge on the plates (which equals the voltage of the battery). However, I've read several sources where it says that electrons actually physically move from the positive plate to the negative plate to create this electric potential. Could it be that both are happening? Or just one? And if so, which one? Thanks in advance.
