Why conductors are use to make capacitor? Can we make capacitor using insulators?

Capacitors are used to store electric charge and to store electric charges we need a conductor

Is it possible for the capacitors to be blown?

What resistance should I use to discharge a 400V capacitor?

1 pF is 1 picofarad and and 1 uF is 1 microfarad, capacitance tells you how much energy can be stored and as you can see pico is way smaller

Do you know what would be the average capacitance for a polarized capacitor?

Why would Capacitors be destroyed when you reverse their polarity,?

So can capacitors like store more voltage then the batteries?

A capacitor is almost like a super fast battery. But batterys take a while to charge. A capacitor can charge super fast and store that energy untill released.

does the current can flow all the way through a capacitor?

Is there any difference between the types of capacitors used such as ceramic, radial, polyester, etc? How do I choose which type to use or doesn't it matter?

yes it matter, there are different kinds of capacitor and each kind is used for different applications

sometime the current flow from negative to positive and sometime from positive to negative? what does it mean?

you might be confuse electron flow is in the opposite direction to current flow.

so a capacitor will only charge up to the voltage supplying it?
