Answer :

When battery is connected to a capacitor, current flows throughout

the circuit except between the plates of the capacitor. But, there

exists electric field between the plates which eventually create

magnetic field. It leads inconsistency in Ampere’s circuital law.

For this problem, concept of displacement current is

Introduced by Maxwell. He modifies the Ampere’s law as follows,

Ampere’s law

Ampere Maxwell’s law

Where, B = Magnetic field

I = current

Id = displacement current

According to this law, displacement current is arise due to the changing electric field which in turn creates magnetic field between the plates.

Displacement current,


ΦE = electric flux

ϵ0 = permittivity of the space
