Polarized fixed capacitor. A polarized ("polar") capacitor is a type of capacitor that have implicit polarity -- it can only be connected one way in a circuit. The positive lead is shown on the schematic (and often on the capacitor) with a little "+" symbol.

Polar capacitors are ones that have a positive and negative lead and can only be connected in one way. Non-polar capacitors can be connected either way in a circuit. Polar capacitors are commonly used to filter AC components out of DC signals. Non-polar capacitors are often used to pass AC signals while blocking DC.
