Re: understood, but then why are caps directional ...

134.134.248.22

In the case of electrolytics they are directional because of the dielectric used to isolate (insulate) between the conductive charged layers. When wired the wrong way the dielectric can break down and with high voltages the capacitor can and will explode...I've witnessed it.
As far as I know it has nothing to do with RF.
