Hand contact with capacitor negative (excess of electrons) terminal only.

    Thank you for any help you are able to provide.

    I myself think that the electrons will flow to the
    human body and further drain the battery.

    What do you think? If I keep the potential across the capacitor plates the same, but increase their area, does that increase the rate of electron flow to the person? What determines current flow through something? Does increasing the plate area affect that?
