A. Over time the internal molecular structure changes in such a way as to create an alignment of electrical dipoles. This alignment results in a molecular structure that can hold less electrical charge than when the molecules are in a totally random state, such as at the time of heating or mounting (soldering) on a printed circuit board*.
