Uses of Capacitors?

Answer

Different types of capacitors have different types of uses. Some of the major types of capacitors include ceramic capacitors, electrolytic capacitors, tantalum capacitors, silver mica capacitors, polystyrene film capacitors, polyester film capacitors, polycarbonate capacitors, polypropylene capacitors, and glass capacitors. Pulsed power weapons and amplifiers in car audio systems also use capacitors to function. Capacitors store electrical energy, even if they are not connected to an electrical source. They are kind of like a temporary battery.
