the function of a capacitor in an electric circuit is to? A)allow current flow between its plates. B)measure the amount of current in the circuit. C)increase circuit power. D) store electric charges.


A and D are both correct, if you include in "current flow" the concept of displacement current. But I think D is a better answer for beginning students. Capacitors store electric energy by having unlike charges on its plates.


i need to know about capacitors and interrupter
