Capacitor research and questions

Now I am learning all about capacitors. Voltage, obviously must be higher than the charging rate - so 15 or higher? What about the top number? Does the capacitor care if it is rated for 450 but only 13.5 is being fed? Second number mF or uF. This is the amount of charge that the capacitor can hold. Bottom number? I see 150000 on the one in the picture, and another post had 68000. What is the practical range?

Thanks,
