Is that true a capacitor stores energy in the form of a magnetic field?
How does a capacitor store energy?
The energy stored in a capacitor is almost entirely in the electric field produced between the plates. It takes energy from a battery or some other power source to move electrons to one of the plates and away from the other. This makes one plate positively charged and the other negatively charged. Electric field is produced in proportion to the charge per unit area on a plate, and this electric field is said to originate on positive charges and terminate on negative charges. Energy stored in electric fields is proportional to the square of the electric field strength and the volume of the field. The energy is transferred from the power source to the electric field through the rearrangement of electrical charges.

What is the reason behind the lag of current in inductor lead in capacitor?
The physics of the energy storage. In an inductor, the current must fight against the stored energy in the magnetic field which tries to keep the current unchanged. Any change in the current lags the voltage since the stored energy impacts the adjustment. Similarly, the "displacement" current in a capacitor leads the electric field buildup in a capacitor, causing the voltage to lag the current until the stored energy building up in the electric field stabilizes. Any change in the voltage is first preceded by a change in the displacement current.

What is a capacitance?
capacitance is the ability of a body to store charge in anelectric field. Capacitance is also a measure of the amount of electric potential energy stored (or separated) for a given electric potential. Answer A capacitor is a device that will store electrical energy. This energy is stored in its electric field. This is achieved by separating the charge on its plates -contrary to popular belief, it does not store that charge, as the net charge remains the same after charging as it was before charging.
How reactive power is utilised and returned to the circuit?
The energy is stored in an inductor in the form of magnetic field and in capacitor as electric charges. In both cases, as the current increase,according to its sine wave form, the flux or electric charges build up i.e energy being stored. As the current start dropping the field or electric charge start dropping too thus energy is being fed back into the circuit.
A capacitor is a device which stores energy by?
Magic. Look up capacitors on wikipedia!! A capacitor stores electrical charges in its plates. Both wrong. A capacitor stores energy as an electric field developed in the dielectric between its plates. A good dielectric with high permittivity (once called dielectric constant) concentrates this field, allowing more energy to be stored in a capacitor having the same plate area and separation but a dielectric of lower permittivity.
For a permanent magnet where is the energy associated to the magnetic field of the magnet stored?

Asked in Physics
Does an electric capacitor store electric charge?
Yes .. that is the function of the capacitor .. to store an electrical charge .. but unlike a battery it releases it all at once .. be careful handling a capacitor that might not have been discharged , it could shock you. Answer No. A capacitor simply allows the transfer of negative charge from one plate across to its other plate, resulting in the establishment of an electric field between the two plates. There is no net change whatsoever in the amount of charge on the capacitor. So a capacitor does not store charge! What is stored is energy.
Where does the energy of a charged capacitor reside?
