thats how we are taught in engineering.
lets see you connect an LED in series with a discharged cap to a battery. if you are right the LED will glow
Sorry I used the wrong term "short circuit", I wanted to say "almost fully conductor"
The LED would light at first then it would dim quickly until is fully off (unless the cap is bad)
