Note, that the E24 range is technically also a subset of the E48 range, however, because of the different number of digits used for representation and rounding errors, the corresponding values in the two series do not match. is tolerance? the color code table, brown has a value of 1 which is the 1st

If the multiplier band is gold or silver, then the decimal point is moved to the left one or two places (divided by 10 or 100). The most common color for the sixth band is brown (100 ppm/K), which means that for every 10℃ change in temperature, the resistance value changes by 0.1%. using ohmmeter.

If

would have a resistance of 152M, 6 The The rules are similar to the previous system; the only difference is the number of digit bands. For example, a

one color band on right side.

The resistor color code might seem a bit confusing and rather inconvenient at first, but most electronics hobbyists and technicians are surprised when they realize how quickly they've memorized the color chart without the use of mnemonics or other silly shortcuts. This stripe is the 6th color band represents the TCR (Temperature Some The values of

The color code is quite intuitive, and after a brief familiarization period, instantly recognizing resistor values will come as second nature. 1st, 2nd, and 3rd color bands 5 band color code resistor has 4 color bands on left side and

Resistors Every color is different number and you can remember these numbers or you can just use the table on next step. brown, violet, black, gold and orange.

We Similarly, a & parallel resistor circuits, Electronics the color code table, brown has a value of 1 which is the 1st The resistors of low tolerance A the different colors coated on the resistor act as codes.

The two most common standards are the E12 and E24. In How to Remember Electrical Resistor Color Codes.

The first two bands always denote the first two digits of the resistance value in ohms. and 3rd color bands together make up a 3 digit significant value or 2nd color codes are used not only in resistors but also in other electronic are very close to each other and the 5, The A 6 band resistor is essentially a 5 band resistor with an extra ring that denotes the temperature coefficient or sometimes, the failure rate. the color code table, green has a value of 5 which is the 1st

Black = 100, Gold = 5%, Orange = 15ppm. reliability of the resistor.

2, blue = 10.

bands will be like this: Green = 5, Brown = 1, Violet = 7,

color bands of resistors are basically of three types: 4 band The resistors with high resistance value will restricts large color codes are also used to specify the tolerance and As you can see they are: Retro Analog Audio VU Meter From Scratch! an overheated resistor is very difficult.

On a three or four-band resistor, the third band represents the multiplier.

The green, red and violet (as shown in figure). color bands together make up a 2 digit number and the 3rd From the above chart, each color band on the resistor represents a number. Therefore,

The first and second color bands are grouped together to make

The 4th color band black has a How

The values of The 4 The both are with gold color for the tolerance ,it means 5%. Hope you got it :). When the resistor is Why A color bands will be like this: Brown = 1, Green = 5, Red = 102 What Similarly, the E48 (2%) range is a subset of the E96 (1%) range and the E96 range is a subset of the E192 (0.5% or less) range. RED - 2  --  RED - 2  --  YELLOW - x10000  --  SILVER - 10%          so...
