[I have attached a diagram of the setup below]. I am trying to understand how exactly a parallel-plate capacitor [the one with two metal plates separated by a dielectric] gets charged. This is what I have gotten so far. 1) When the capacitor is in its uncharged state, both metal plates have both positive and negative charges in equal amounts. 2) When the battery is connected, the electrons in the top plate move towards the positive terminal of the battery. 3) ??? Where does the electron go now? 4) The electrons in the top plate keep moving moving towards the positive terminal, making the top plate positively charged. 5) How does the bottom plate become negatively charged?
