Expert Answer:

Dear Student,

Yes. The bulb will glow initially. It will get dimmer and will be off as the capacitor discharges completely. Of course, how much time it would glow depends on the size (capacitance in farads) of the capacitor. Ultra large capacitors can make the bulb glow for a long time. Capacitors are used in cameras to power the flash, though for a very short duration.

We hope that clarifies your query.
