Please I would like to know how the resistance of the plates of a capacitors work? Is it the same as a resistor?

If yes, is there electric field like inside a resistor?

Thank you

Electronic devices have different approximations depending on their application. Depending on the application (design) of the circuit governs which approximation is required. Some applications can use the ideal approximation, but if certain circuit requirements such as high frequency operation, could make it important to consider a non ideal case. A good place to learn more about these effects is a book on network analysis. There they will discuss this in detail and how it relates to first, second, etc

order circuits usually expressed and solved using Laplace transforms since solving the differential equations are easier to solve this way.

The addition of the series resistor case adds a simple RC time constant to the circuit connected to the capacitor.

The parallel resistance represents the leakage resistance. This value is usually much larger than the circuit elements the capacitor is connected to and can in most cases can be ignored. I hope keeping the response simple is helpful

I think nDenver has the best and clearest answer. This is where I was heading in terms of a response

But the resistor has an electric field inside it but for example internal resistance inside an EMF is different however it resists the movements of electrons. That's why I am asking about the resistance of capacitor's plate

I am talking about resistance of capacitor's plate and related Equivalent Series Resistor due to its conductivity
