How does a capacitor block dc but allow ac to pass through a circuit?

When DC is applied to a capacitor a current flows for a short time until the capacitor is charged, with positive charges on one plate and negative on the other (a current is a movement of charge). Therefore, for a short time before it is fully charged, a capacitor does conduct current. When AC is applied to a capacitor, it allows current to pass alternately forward and back as charge flows into the plates and out again. So, seen from outside, current is flowing.

What is the movement that allows you to gaze at the ceiling?

Hyperextension is the movement that allows you to gaze at the ceiling.

This type of joint allows side to side movement and up and down movement?

There are six joints that have movement. The plvotal joint is what allows up and down movement.

What allows ions to take part in other chemical reactions?

The strong attractive force of the other oppositely charged ions is responsible for their movement in a chemical reaction.

What motion occurs in the thumb?

This is a saddle joint which allows movement in two planes instead of one. It allows the thumb to cross the palm of the hand. This joint allows biaxial movement. This allows movement in the frontal and sagittal planes.

The electric device which blocks DC but allows AC is called?

A capacitor is a device which blocks DC, but allows AC. When a capacitor is completely charged it does not allow current to pass through it. Initially when capacitor starts charging it has maximum current which flows and voltage is minimum, during charging current decreases with time and voltage increases. When capacitor is completely charged, it has maximum voltage and minimum current. However the AC has both positive and negative half cycles, during positive half cycle capacitor starts charging but during negative half cycle it discharges, and hence it doesn't get fully charged at AC, and current always flows through it.

Advantages of current transformer?

A CT allows:heavy currents to be measured using conventional ammeters, andelectrically-isolates the ammeters from high-voltage primary circuits.

Why do fruit batteries work?

Regular batteries work because of the electrical current that runs through them. Acidic fruits have particles which when charged up act as an electrical current allows them to work just like a normal battery.

What joint allows side to side movement?

A saddle joint allows for side to side movement. The Carpometacarpal joints (fingers) are saddle joints.

What feature of the mantle allows movement of the earths crust occur?

The much of the mantle is solid but ductile. This allows it to convect, which aids in plate movement.

How does electricity flow through a conductor?

Electric current - a movement or flow of electrically charged particles, typically measured in amperes.In a conductor, current flow is via a drift of free electrons in the metal. the actual drift rate may be slow, the electric field that drives them itself propagates at close to the speed of light, enabling electrical signals to pass rapidly along wires.See related link belowElectricity can flow through a conductor because it allows the electrons to move freely through the object. With an insulator, electrons cannot move.

Which type of tissue produces movement?

Muscle tissue allows/produces movement.

The type joint that allows the greatest degree of movement is the joint?

The ball-and-socket joint allows the greatest amount of movement, like the shoulder or hip.

What do you mean by heating and magnetic effect of electric current?

When electric current travels through a conductor, there is always resistance. This resistance causes some of the energy of the current to express as heat. Additionally, the movement of the current causes a magnetic field to form around the current in a clockwise direction. This principle is what allows coil heaters and induction motors to operate.
