This thread is so long running that I'm no longer sure that I'm
answerign the right question.
But, if I do understand, then of course the total charge on anyother).
capacitor in any normal circuit is ZERO (+q on one plate and -q on the
It seems to me that the "twice q" as compared to Smythe is due simply to
the question of how much charge it takes to produce a certain charge
For consistancy, we require the the integral of the charge
density over the surface yield q (either +q or -q depending on which plate).
