Assuming that an empty capacitor is charged with the charges on the other side of wires and then disconnected. If this process is repeated by empty capacitors multiple times so that potential difference between wires get close to zero, what will happen to charge formation in the wires? (There are images at the bottom of this post of what I imagine)
- Do charges close to the electric fields get less dense? Do they move at all (images 2 to 7)?
- If the charges close to the electric field do not move, what will happen on wire edges? How can this be connected to the rule of zero electric field in a conductor?
- If the charges close to the electric field get less dense, is it possible to shortcut the two wires and recharge the wire edges (images 8-11)?
- If it is possible, then will the charge density be less than initial step (not discharged by capacitors) or it'll be the same as initial step?
I did a very simple test but I found this logic to be false, however, my electric field surely was not strong enough to maybe fill the wire edge to make charges stack farther than wire edge. What I inferred was that electric charges stick so hard close to the electric field and there is no charge built up in the wires to be shortcut. Or at least shortcut does not work even when I get sure that there is no more charge to store on an empty capacitor by the wires.
- Assuming that the electric field is very strong and wire be narrow, will all charges stack on the edge or they may stack a bit farther to the electric field because of high charge density on wire edge (image 1)? What about when potential of wires are consumed (image 7)?
