No. Axial, because leads are on axis of cylinder. The radial form
does not actually have the leads along radius, but exit through a
radial (or diameter) line.
Me too.
Right. Any DC up to 160 volts is okay.
Right. Just another form of electrolytic.

Someone gave me a bunch of capacitors.

One of them has the following.

SPAGUE
(2) 8 D

100 UF

0-160VDC

Then it has
+> +> +> +>
pointing to one of the wires coming out of the Capacitor.

The capacitor physically is a big cap, about 1 1/2 inches long and the wires
are at oposite ends like a resistor, instead of the normal out of the
bottom for an electrolytic cap. eg --(00000)-- (do they call this a radial
??)

Here are my questions?
I asume that this is a 100 uF Cap. No rocket science there. But I guess I
have not seen the notation of 0-160VDC. I asume that this is just a
different way of saying what I normaly see which is 16v or 25v or 100v.

And I asume that this IS an electrolytic CAP even though normally what Im
use to seeing is the >>>> pointing to the Negative side of the wire and both
the wires coming out of the bottom of the Cap.

Thanks.
