Current increases up to a certain point, and then decreases until it reaches zero. Then it does the same thing in the other direction. Here's my problem.
Without the inductor, the current would not increase over time: it would decay until the two plates had equal charge. With the inductor, I believe the current should decay even faster because inductors tend to create a magnetic flux that opposes the current change. Where is the current increase coming from?
Please be nice: I'm studying physics on my own for pleasure, and haven't taken classes.
