RESISTORS COLOUR CODE:
Ignore the colour of the resistor body.
The band nearest the wire lead gives the value of the first digit. e.g Brown = 1.
The next band gives the value of the next digit e.g. red = 2
The third band gives the number of zeros which follows the two digits.e.g. orange = 3 zeros = 000.
Therefore a resistor with brown, red, orange bands would have a value of 12000 ohms.
This resistor has a value of 2,700,000 ohms.
A green blue black resistor would be 56 ohms. (black indicates that there are no zeros).
Black = 0
If the third band is silver then divide the value of the first two digits by 100, if gold divide by 10.
The fourth band indicates the tolerance.
If there is a fifth pink band this indicates a high stability resistor.
