The Tropic of Capricorn is the southernmost latitude, about 23.4 degrees of latitude south of the equator, where the sun can ever be exactly overhead (at the zenith). Not surprisingly, this latitude corresponds to the 23.4 degree tilt in the earth's axis relative to the ecliptic, the plane of earth's orbit around the sun.
