Sketch, simulate, and share your circuits. E12 series - resistor color code examples. In the E12 series each succeeding resistor falls within the -/+ 10 % of the previous value.
Until fairly recently, 10% tolerance resistors were the norm, but today, 5% (E24) resistors seem to be the most commonly used. They still can be found in vintage radios, old amplifiers, etc., but the price of a 5% resistor is low enough to be the standard component in all of today's electronic circuits. In precision applications, special, more expensive low-tolerance resistors are used with tolerance ratings of 2%, 1% or less. Resistor Color Code Calculator. Seeking Wisdom. Get the Grammar Right I had a little meltdown this week after reading about 30 of those silly pictures on Facebook that people put the funny captions on… well, they would be funny if they were grammatically correct.
I just couldn’t take it any longer, so I had to post a comment. Then, today, I saw this very cool graphic from the great folks at makeuseof.com and thought I’d share it here. Seeking Wisdom » resistor color codes. As a teacher, I’m always on the lookout for new and interesting ways to promote learning in my classes.
Although I have removed other book examples from this web site, this page remains the most popular destination within dannyg.com — presumably as a resource for students of electricity/electronics and my fellow radio geeks. Enjoy! Illustration Copyright 1996 Danny Goodman (AE9F).
