Capacitor and flywheel

Is the working principle of capacitor and flywheel are same?

Both store energy. However, the cap stores it as separated electric charges and the flywheel stores it as momentum.
Capacitor:


Flywheel:
Thank you very much sir and very good info. And how the inner negative charges of plate 2 reduce the potential of plate 1?

Each negative charge cancels one positive charge. To that extent the potential decreases. The potential difference is directly linked with the number of separated charges. The video on capacitors have linked videos that develop the topic further.
why we use capacitor only for single phase and not for three phase ?
superb sir A.V.Ramani and thank you very much.

Were its necessary to ensure the for large energy storage we required large diameter fly wheel for small work like press machine??
There only press operation will be done within soconds so why a large size fly wheel are necessary??
