Word forms: (regular plural) electrolytic capacitors
( Electrical engineering : Electronics components )
An electrolytic capacitor is a type of capacitor that uses an electrolyte as one of its plates, to achieve
a larger capacitance per unit volume than other types of capacitors.
Electrolytic capacitors are generally used in electronic equipment, and their greatest advantage is that
they can exhibit a large amount of capacitance in a small case size.
An electrolytic capacitor is an electrical capacitor with an electrolyte between the two plates.
