## What number is represented by the color brown in the first band?

The first band is the brown band closest to the edge. We look up our resistor color code chart, and find that brown has the 1st significant value of 1 and black has the second significant value of 0.

## How do you find the value of resistance by color code?

Reading and Determining the Resistor Value

Hold the resistor with the gold or silver band to the right and read the color codes from the left to the right. Select the color codes from the bands on the resistor. Read the colors from left to right. The resistance value based on the color code provided is now displayed.

## How do you read resistor color bands?

Common Resistor Color Code Questions:

Hold the resistor with these grouped bands to your left. Always read resistors from left to right. – Resistors never start with a metallic band on the left. If you have a resistor with a gold or silver band on one end, you have a 5% or 10% tolerance resistor.

## What is the value of a resistor having a color of brown green black and silver?

Brown-Green-Grey-Silver-Red Color Code

A resistor colored Brown-Green-Grey-Silver-Red would be 1.58 ? with a tolerance of +/- 2%.

## What is the value of the third band of a 4 band resistor?

4 band resistor

By using the color code chart, one finds that green stands for 5 and blue for 6. The third band is the multiplier, with red representing a multiplier value of 2 (102). Therefore, the value of this resistor is 56 · 102 = 56 · 100 = 5600 ?.

## What is the tolerance of a 3 band resistor?

The values of 3-band resistors have a tolerance of ±20% and are commonly used by hobbyists or when the resistance value is not critical. For a 1R0 (1 ?) resistor with 3 bands, the colors will be brown, black and gold. The resistance value will fall between 1.2 ? and 0.8 ?.

## Which Colour band of resistor indicates the multiplier?

Resistor Colour Code Examples

As we know, the first two colours represent the significant digits of resistance value so the given colours represent digits 2 and 5. The third band is a multiplier band. Hence, the colour red represents a multiplier factor of 102.

## What is color code?

Color codes are ways of representing the colors we see everyday in a format that a computer can interpret and display. Commonly used in websites and other software applications, there are a variety of formats. The two that will be introduced here are the Hex Color Codes, and the RGB color codes.

## What is the value of brown in multiplier section?

## What does color band system mean?

Color band system

Gold signifies that the tolerance is ±5%. Precision resistors may be marked with a five band system, to include three significant digits, a power of 10 multiplier (number of trailing zeroes, and a tolerance band. An extra-wide first band indicates a wire-wound resistor.

## What is the resistor value?

Resistors. A resistor is a device that opposes the flow of electrical current. The bigger the value of a resistor the more it opposes the current flow. The value of a resistor is given in ohms and is often referred to as its ‘resistance’.

## How do you find the value of a resistor?

Pick out a random resistor and set the multimeter to the 20k? setting. Then hold the probes against the resistor legs with the same amount of pressure you when pressing a key on a keyboard. The meter will read one of three things, 0.00, 1, or the actual resistor value.

## What is the value of red red Orange Capacitor?

## How do you write a resistor color code?

6 Band Resistor Color Code

In six band resistor color code, the first three bands denote the resistance values, 1-multiplier band, 1-tolerance band & 1-temperature coefficient value. The formula for the three-band resistor color code is – 1st digit. 2nd digit. third digit x Multiplier = 1.0.

## What is the resistance formula?

R = V ÷ I Question

What is the resistance of the lamp? To calculate the resistance of an electrical component, an ammeter is used to measure the current and a voltmeter to measure the potential difference. The resistance can then be calculated using Ohm’s Law.

## Which color represents digit 4 in resistor color code?

To distinguish left from right there is a gap between the C and D bands. For example, a resistor with bands of yellow, violet, red, and gold will have first digit 4 (yellow in table below), second digit 7 (violet), followed by 2 (red) zeros: 4,700 ohms.

## What color used as the multiplier band means to divide the combined first two numbers by 10?

Two special cases of the multiplier band (band 3) are used for very small values where gold indicates that the first two bands must be divided by 10, and silver means divide by 100, e.g. 4.7? (or 4R7) would be indicated by yellow, violet(47), gold (divided by 10) = 4.7?.

## What is the third band on a resistor used for?

The third band is called a Multiplier, this means the number of zeros you add after the first two digits to get the Ohm value (example: brown = 0). So one zero is added after the first two numbers. Therefore 220 ohms is the resistance value of the resistor.

## What is the resistor Colour code for a 1000 ? resistor?

5 Band 1K Resistor Color Code

For 1K resistors with five bands, the first three bands will be brown, black, and black (indicating 100) and the fourth band will be brown indicating a multiplier of x10.

## Which digit is represented by a black band on a resistor?

https://pundit.pratt.duke.edu/wiki/Resistor_Color_Codes

## What color code is brown?

The hex code for brown is #964B00.

## What color that makes brown?

To create a basic brown paint, mix two complementary colors in equal amounts. Choose a red paint and a green paint (or yellow paint and purple paint, or blue paint and orange paint) and dab a little bit of each onto your surface to mix. Stir the different colors with your palette knife until it becomes a smooth brown.
