Main Question or Discussion Point

Point charges w/velocity have a magnetic field. How does an uncharged capacitor slow the point charges to zero velocity?

Shouldn't elastic collisions with other point charges or atoms predominate, followed by inelastic collisions that convert point charge kinetic energy to thermal energy?

Hint: Current theory is that electrons cascade through atoms by quantized electron movement.

What charges? The capacitor is uncharged.

I am having trouble following or understanding your question.

In an LC oscillator, energy converts back and forth between magnetic energy and voltage's energy. When magnetic energy is max, exactly how does the capacitor begin converting the moving point charges into stationary point charges?
