Classifications of capacitors, Physics


The capacitors can be classified on the basis of nature of value, type of dielectric material used and polarity.

On the basis of nature of value:

  1. Fixed value capacitor
  2. Variable capacitor


On the basis of dielectric material used:

  1. Paper capacitor
  2. Ceramic capacitor
  3. Mica capacitor
  4. Plastic capacitor
  5. Air capacitor
  6. Glass capacitor
  7. Vitreous enamelled capacitor
  8. Electrolytic capacitor   


On the basis of polarization:
