The sequence of cocharacters (c.c.s.) of a P.I. algebra is studied. We prove that an algebra satisfies a Capelli identity if, and only if, all the Young diagrams associated with its cocharacters are of a bounded height. This result is then applied to study the identities of certain P.I. algebras, includingF k .
