Capacitor is a widely used electronic component. It stores electric charge and then discharges it into the circuit. It blocks the direct current and allows the alternating current to pass through it. Depending on the purpose, there are a variety of capacitors being used like ceramic, electrolytic, mylar, mica, etc. We will explore an electrolytic capacitor through this article.
Lastly to summarize the building block of a capacitor includes a pair of metal plates, thin rods, a dielectric, a rubber stand, a metal container and a plastic covering.
