    Technically anyone who knows basic circuit board info could answer this. I am working on a coil gun. I have completed everything except the final circuit wiring. I have a disposable camera flash circuit, and I need to solder a capacitor bank in place of the existing capacitor. Unfortunately I forgot to check the orientation of the capacitor before desoldering it, and I cannot find any more of this particular brand of camera.

    On my flash circuit the connection points for the capacitor have a small symbol next to them as so: -[] |-
    I am pretty sure the -[] side needs to be connected to the positive lead of the capacitor, and the |- end needs to be connected to the negative lead. I want to confirm this before frying anything or simply having a nonfunctional coilgun.
