Added by Bill Phillips on Feb 20, 2008

An animation illustrating the process of charging a capacitor. Electrons flow onto one plate, creating a region of negative charge that generates an electric field, repelling the electrons on the second plate. Click the arrow button to start the animation. Click the arrow button again to discharge the capacitor.
