Whilst solving a circuit in class from a homework assignment, we arrived at a situation where a capacitor was in parallel with just a single independent DC current source. The question is, would current flow through the capacitor? The cap was charged (sequential switching situation) to 9.9 [V] beforehand. Many people in the class felt that the capacitor would allow current to flow even with no other circuit elements present. The source is ideal, by the way.
