I just started learning about capacitors in Electrical and Electronics Principles and I thought of a situation which I couldn't get a satisfactory answer/explanation from my lecturer. What happens if after charging a capacitor to 99%, I reverse the polarity of my power supply (or flip the capacitor)? Also, is it dangerous to do this and why? I'm assuming the surplus electrons on the side of the capacitor will flow to the other side of the capacitor, thus changing the polarity of the charged capacitor, i.e. discharge then charge again.
