Hi. I'm new to electronics, hence the basic question.
When a load such as a lamp is placed in parallel with a capacitor in a basic RC circuit, why doesn't current flow through the lamp while the capacitor is charging? The virtual simulator i am using shows no current through the lamp until the capacitor is fully charged. Why wouldn't there be some current divided between both the capacitor branch and the lamp, and then just the lamp when the capacitor is fully charged?
Thanks for your help.
