Question about Computers & Internet
Ceramic types are often found at the low range of capacitive values and electrolytic types are are the high end of capacitive values. Ceramic and electrolytic caps do certain jobs better when of one design instead of the other. The capacitive values may be the same, but there are other qualities that don't get printed on the part. One of the most noticeable differences is that electrolytic types don't do a very good job passing radio frequencies (RF). You'll often see several ceramic types in parallel (if needed) to get the correct amount of capacitance when a single electrolytic would appear to do the job in an circuit where the frequency is in the RF range. Audio Frequencies (AF) on the other hand are significantly lower and do not pose the same problem. There are other types of caps and they each have situations where they would do the best job.
In short, the developer / manufacturer selects all the parts based on a wide range of variables he needs to control based on design and testing. You should always replace components with like components, otherwise you risk adverse reaction(s) from one of those variables that had originally been contained.
