Sorry, you need a Java-enabled browser to see the simulation.

Here are three circuits which are identical except for the size of the capacitors in them. A larger capacitor (higher capacitance) can store more charge, so the current will be greater for a given voltage. The capacitor on top is the largest, so the current flow is greatest in that circuit.
