A capacitor of capacitance C is being charged up by connecting it across a dc voltage source of voltage V. How do the conduction and displacement currents in this set up compare with each other: (a) During charging up process. (b) After the capacitor gets fully charged?

Expert Answer:

The displacement current is only due to variation of electric field, and the electric field vill vary only when the charge on the capacitor plates will vary and charge will vary only due to charging.
Conduction current is the normal current in the connecting wire.
