Are ceramic capacitors directional?

Electrolytic Capacitors. Not all capacitors are polarized, but when they are, it's very important not to mix their polarity up. Ceramic capacitors – the small (1µF and less), commonly yellow guys – are not polarized. You can stick those in either way.

In this way, what a capacitor is made of?

The conductive plates of a capacitor are generally made of a metal foil or a metal film allowing for the flow of electrons and charge, but the dielectric material used is always an insulator.

What is the working voltage of a ceramic capacitor?

Ceramic disc capacitors have a capacitance value of 10pF to 100μF with a wide variety of voltage ratings, between 16 volts to 15 kV and more.

What is a x7r capacitor?

X7R formulations are called “temperature stable” ceramics and fall into EIA Class II materials. X7R is the most popular of these intermediate dielectric constant materials. Its temperature variation of capacitance is within ±15% from -55°C to +125°C.
