Resistors
Resistor are very common they Circuit Symbol
are found in most circuit
boards. Resistors are used to
limit the amount of current
flowing in a circuit which could
damage useful Image of a Resistor

components they are also used to
set specific voltage in
some parts of the circuit.

Resistors
Resistors are measured in ohm () which is a unit for
resistance. This is very small so resistors are given the
letters (R,K,M).
Below is what these letters mean:
R = x1
K = x1000
M = x1000000

Resistor Colour Code
Resistors has four band of colour that shows their
resistance value. In a Resistor the first two bands give
the first two numbers of the resistors value. In the
resistor the third band gives the number of zeros to be
added.
Tolerance (Band 4):
- A gold…
