Resistors

 An electrical component that opposes the flow of electrons - - - - - - - - ?...! - - - - - - - -

 Resistors reduce the electrical pressure  Voltage is dropped  Current remains the same  Resistors reduce the electrical pressure  Voltage is dropped  Current remains the same --------- - - -- - - - - - - - -

 So there is an energy change! Then what’s all this energy being converted into? --------- - - -- - - - - - - - - HEAT

Types of Resistors  Fixed - resistor  Variable -potentiometer  Light sensitive -photoresistor  Thermal- thermistor  Fixed - resistor  Variable -potentiometer  Light sensitive -photoresistor  Thermal- thermistor

The Resistor Code Decoding Resistor Values

Reading the Resistor  1st Digit  2nd Digit  # of Zeros  Tolerance Stripe  1st Digit  2nd Digit  # of Zeros  Tolerance Stripe Start at band closest to the end of the resistor

Tolerance Stripe  The tolerance is the amount in percent that the resistor is allowed to be off from its stated value What is the value of this resistor?  +/-20% -No Stripe  +/-10% -Silver Stripe  +/-5% - Gold Stripe  +/-20% -No Stripe  +/-10% -Silver Stripe  +/-5% - Gold Stripe

Tolerance Band 44 44 77 77  00 = 4.7KΩ + / - 10%  10% What’s this thing?

``  Omega- a Greek symbol used to represent Ohms, the unit of measure for resistance! Ω
