According to him ac passes through a capacitor because it zigzags between the plates whereas dc hits the plates directly. Told by him more than 6 years ago in another video

Charge in capacitor is stored in the dielectric because you can charge a capacitor and then replace all the metals connected to dielectric and still discharge the capacitor by shorting it. Check video "Ben Franklin Was Right - Capacitor Energy Storage".

That is not true. Charge accumulates on the conductors in a capacitor, while energy is stored in the electric field between those conductors. That field comes from the difference in charge on the two conductors. If you remove one conductor, the field will dissipate and become weak very quickly. Replacing the same conductor without changing the charge it carried would, ideally, keep the capacitor charged the same as before it was disassembled. However, replacing the conductors using the same dielectric would do nothing. The two removed conductors would simply retain their charges until given a path to opposite charges.

No, the capacitor is rated to 16V which means it operates at any voltage below that, not that it will always be 16V. Capacitors charge up a voltage, so that means you can charge that capacitor to about 16V before it breaks or misbehaves.

The physics teacher I wish I had, yet never had. This was so informative, clear and witty. You are very good at explaining. THANK YOU FOR YOUR VIDEO! Also, with regards ti current trailing voltage with 90 degrees, does this have anything to do with the fact that a capacitor used as an audio crossover delays the audio signal with 90 degrees?

Nice video. If u don't mind, A question , My 12acv and 2 amp passing thru a rectifier, the output measure 12dcv with 2amp. How can i increase the amp without decreasing the 12dcv output? Capacitor probably will make a lot of changes to this connection. thanks!

Mehdi, I hope my long question makes sense. In an AC capacitor circuit when the generator is at MAX on the positive (Upper) side and the current is at zero (90 degrees leading), does the current begin to increase now on the negative side of zero because the AC source is now decreasing in voltage (EMF) while the Capacitor (which was previously balanced to the AC source) is now slightly higher and pushing back on the source in the opposite direction as the source voltage continues to drop? …even though the source voltage is still in the upper positive side. In other words if two batteries of equal size are connected with negative too negative and pos to pos they fight each other and there is no current flow. If however, one battery lowers its voltage the larger battery wins the direction of current flow. If that is true then I also think it's poorly taught that when the instant an AC source is turned on the Voltage (force) is zero and the Current is max. That cannot be. Current does not flow without a force of some sort behind it. Now the voltage can be very tiny to produce large amounts of current as long as the resistance is very low, but the Force is with us ; >) . Is that also true?

I've got no questions remaining about capacitors now, and I found this after watching 20+ most watched videos on other channels. This is by far the most informative & fun electronics video I've ever watched on YT, covering physics, math and electronics around capacitors. Great job man, and thanks a lot for putting tens of hours of your time & effort & thinking on a 10 min video. Did laugh out so loud many times when I was actually learning something new, you do have a great talent for teaching!
