Resistor colour codes Resistor values are encoded as colour codes . Here we are talking about 3 band resistor col0ur coding system and how to remember it easily . The colour coding system is as below The number starts from 0 and ends at 9 . Lets take the first letter of each colour B [...]
Resistors are measured in ohms, and have a wattage rating. Resistance value is marked on the resistor in an internationally accepted color code. Normally quarter-watt resistors are used in the following circuits unless otherwise specified. Carbon film and metal film resistors are generally used. Wire wound resistors are used for higher wattage resistors.
