This is my first post and i am glad to be a member of this forum. There is something bugging me for alot of time. I have a problem understanding why the current of an LC oscilator circuit is maximized when the capacitor is fully discharged. Of course when it is explained from the energy perspective it makes sence since the energy of th circuit is transformed totally to magnetic energy. But what about the dynamical approach of the problem. Why the electrons drift velocity maximizes (and so the current) when the capacitor is discharged???

I know that when the switch is closed there are two electric fields in the conductors, the electric field due to the charged capacitor and the opposing induced electric field from the coil. What is the relationship between these fields? Which is bigger? I suppose the electric field of the capacitor, that is why the current increases. I am not sure. Please help!
