Why do polarized capacitors explode?

If a high voltage is applied above the nominal value to the capacitor, its dielectric force will degrade and eventually the capacitor will explode. Electrolytic capacitors fail due to the loss or vaporization of the internal electrolyte. Inadequate polar connections of these capacitors can cause explosion or failure.
