Capacitors. Assortment of capacitors of different sizes, shapes and magnitudes. Capacitors are used to store electric charge. They consist of two metal plates separated by a dielectric (non conducting, separating material). When connected to an electric current one plate receives electrons from the current, the other plate loses electrons to the current. This will happen until the charge on the plates is in equilibrium with the potential difference in the circuit, and current stops flowing. If the source of the potential difference (ie.
