Help required understanding specific schematic voltage

Hi I’m following a schematic off the web and attempting my own copy using Fritzing but am new to engineering as the schematic I’m following doesn’t specify the voltage value of the 47pf capacitor which connects pin 1 & 8 of the IC. I’m wondering what voltage I should set the capacitor’s value too, should it be the same value as the input voltage?

Generally you want the capacitor voltages to be higher ( about double is likely good) than the maximum expected voltage, higher is fine, lower is probably unwise. The voltage rating is the maximum value they will tolerate which is why higher is fine but lower is a bad idea. In this case 15V or higher for all the caps should do.

Ok thank you vanepp, I will set it at 15v.
