    Hi all,
    I have a doubt regarding electrolytic capacitor. Why the electrolytic capacitor should be connected to higher DC potential in the circuit. What happens if the opposite happens? Also how electrolytic capacitors must be used where varying voltage comes across it?

    I think you should try connecting cap reverse. Caution: Keep away cap from your body or face! As you might get a shot:D

    Jokes apart. Agreed with R!f@@. First read something on yourself.
