AC Capacitors

Hi all,

I can say that I think I understand how a DC cap functions.

We can create and then store a charge in that a DC cap (polarised) and, if it
is not leaky, we can hold this voltage and discharge it at will.

Can someone please explain the fuction of AC caps? Say for example, the
1.0uf 2100v cap found in microwave ovens.

Thanks, Garry
