Greetings!

I am confused about all the different types of capacitors out there http://forums.parallax.com/images/smilies/confused.gif
(Mylar, Polyester, Ceramic, Monolithic Multilayer, Electrolytic,
Tantalum, Epoxy Dipped, Metallized, Silver Mica).

When does one use which type? What are the differences?

Thanks for any insight! http://forums.parallax.com/images/smilies/smile.gif
