" During a charging process of a flat capacitor, the Poynting


vector ( S=ExH ) comes from outside the capacitor towards the
wire connections, parallel to the surface of the armatures inside
the dielectric medium. There is an energy flow directly
proportional to ExB. This energy is not provided by the wires
but comes from the surrounding space around the
capacitor. ( ref: "The Feynman Lectures on Physics :
