FAMILIZATION OF BASIC ELECTRONIC COMPONENT SUCH AS RESISTORS

OBJECTIVE: – How to measure the resistance values of various colour coded carbon resistors.

THEORY: – 

RESISTOR: A resistor is a passive bilateral electrical component that implements electrical resistance as a circuit element. It reduces current flow, at the same time. It may act to lower voltage levels within circuit.

These are three types of resistors——

1)FIXED RESISTOR: – This resistor has a fixed value and it has a defined ohmic resistance and is not adjustable. This resistor is less stable.

2)VARIABLE RESISTOR: –The resistor whose electrical resistance value can be adjusted as per requirement by adjustable component attached to it. The resistance is varied by sliding a wiper contract along a resistance track.

3)POTENTIOMETER: – A potentiometer, informally a pot, is a three-terminal resistor with a sliding or rotating contact that forms adjustable voltage divider. If only two terminals are used, one end the wiper, it acts as a variable resistor or rheostat.

CONCLUSION: –

1)Each resistor has a current carrying capacity.

2)Current more than the prescribed wattage may damage the resistor.
