As a terminology this is very confusing, I could understand mcF, but mkF implies milli-kilo-Farad which (interpreted literally) means Farad. Thankfully I haven't come across this terminology before.mkF means usually microfarads (mikrofarads) or uF.
That is not necessarily true. As long as both sides of the cap are DC biased then AC squiggles are ok. You see this in video apps with TV's from time to time.If you're using a 10uF cap, electrolytics are the only ones that large [at least, that I know of, that are commonly available]. Also, the cap needs to be a non-polarized type since it will have AC applied to it.
