Basic question about resistors and capacitors

    There are occasions in which a resistor or a capacitor of the exact
    value
    required by the project cannot be obtained.

    My question is:
    ¿What happens if in a certain project a resistor to 1/2W instead of
    the 1/4W required by the project is installed

    ¿What happens if in a certain project a capacitor to 50V is installed
    instead of 25V required by the project? The question does not refer
    to the value in farads.

    It alters the general operation of the project?

    Thanks in advance for any comment.

    In both cases it'll be just fine since you're exceeding the required
    rating.
