Even some of the most basic circuits out there use aluminum electrolytic capacitors. This particular capacitor is an aluminum electrolytic radial style with a 50v max and capacitance of 6.8uF. If you are unfamiliar with aluminum electrolytic capacitors then there are a couple very key factors to be aware of when selecting them. The first is the maximum voltage that the capacitor can handle. In this particular Al electrolytic capacitor the max voltage is 50v, so you do not want to supply more than that with this capacitor. You can supply a lesser voltage and you'll be ok, just be sure you don't exceed the maximum voltage. The other value that is of great importance when choosing a capacitor is the actual capacitance. This is expressed in farads. The value of this specific capacitor is 6.8uF or 6.8 micro farads.
Something important to note with electrolytic capacitors is that they have polarity. It's imperative to not hook them up backwards. They are typically marked with a negative sign on one side, a strip on the negative side, a shorter leg indicating the negative side, or any combination of those.
Please note values/markings shown on the component in the picture may be different than the actual product markings due to the many different values for this particular component.
