Can you answer me some questions:
1. What is difference between film capacitor and ceramic capacitor?
2. In which case we often use film capacitor?
Thanks in advance.

Think plastic sheet vs something a lot more rigid.

One difference is their mechanical characteristics

I use ceramic capacitors in higher frequency applicatons.
There are a lot of different 'film' capacitors anymore. They all have their own price and performance idiosyncrasises.
Did you have a specific application in mind?

I use capacitor to filter noise. But i don't know when we should use film capacitor.
