I was wondering... exactly how do capacitors charge in a series? Let me clarify what I mean. Let's say that I have 5 capacitors in a series. How do the ones in the middle gain a charge if they are not connected to the actual power source? I know that this is probably a stupid question, but this has been bothering me for a long time now and I've looked everywhere, yet I still cannot seem to find an answer for WHY capacitors can charge in a series.
