Default Hardware Quiz #53: Resistor FUN!!!

Any motherboard will have plenty of resistors on it. So what the heck are these colors on them?!? What do they mean, and in what order from top to bottom?


Answer: D - First Digit, Second Digit, Multiplier, Tolerance, Qualty

BONUS: What does this color represent on a resistor???

(Just shout out the bonus answers.....)

BONUS:

The resistance value of the resistors are found using the color and its position.

I forgot how to exactly calculate the resistance value.

the first 2 colors are the value, the 3 is the multiplier (depending on color depends on the multiplier), a space then the last two are tolerance and quality... for the multiplier it wont say 10 100 or whatever, it will be the same way, say its value is 3 and the first 2 values are 3 and 4, that would make its value 34000, the tolerance would be the decimal location and the quality is not always there, but I think usually relates to its life expactancy.
