Answer :

This depends on the power of the source.If power is kept constant then the voltage increases with decrease in current (P=VI) .But if lets say the source is replaced by new batteries then the current increases (V=IR).

What happens to current flow in a capacitive circuit when the DC voltage across the capacitor is approximately equal to the source voltage?
Last Answer : Capacitor always charges up to the voltage of source. When the capacitor is charged to same as source voltage then there is no current flowing through the capacitor. The current through the capacitor is called displacement current.
