It's in the accusative because motion is implied.
What about She sets plates on the table? You use a different form of stellen?
Yes that's right. I'm not really sure, which one (I haven't learnt all forms of stellen), but I would guess that should be "Sie stellt Teller auf den Tisch."
I guess it should be acceptable to translate the sentence with both "plate" and "plates ", because plural form it is not clearly indicated.
