WHAT IS RESISTOR??
A Resister Is a Passive Two Terminal Electrical Component That Implements Electrical Resistance as Circuit Elements. The Ratio of The Voltage Applied Across A Resister’s Terminals To The Intensity Of Current Through The Circuit Is Called Resistance. This Relation Is Represented by Ohm’s Law:
V = I R

UNIT & SYMBOL: –
The Ohm (Symbol: Ω) Is the Unit of Electrical Resistance, Named After Georg Simon Ohm.
An Ohm Is Equivalent to A Volt Per Ampere
Other Derived Units Are Mili Ohm (1mΩ=10-3 Ω), Kilo Ohm (1kΩ=103Ω), And Mega Ohm (1mΩ=106Ω).

TYPES OF RESISTOR: –

  1. Fixed Resistor
  2. Variable Resistor
  3. FIXED RESISTOR
  4. Carbon Composite Resistor
  5. Film Resistor
  6. Wire Wound Resistor
  7. Resistance Wire

VARIABLE RESISTOR: –

  • Rheostat
  • Potentiometer
  • Thermistor
  • Humistor
  • Varistor
  • Photo ResistorCONNECTION OF RESISTOR:-Series Connection:-In Series Connections , The Current Remains Constant
    (i.e. I-I1-I2 -………-IN)
    In Series Connection, Voltage Adds Up.
    (i.e. V-V1+V2 +…….+VN)

    Parallel Connection:-

    In Parallel Connection, The Voltage Remains Constant.
    (i.e. V-V1-V2-…..-VN)
    In Parallel Connection, Current Adds Up.
    (i.e. I=I1+I2+…….+IN)

    RESISTOR COLOUR CODE:-
    An electronic color code is used to indicate the values or ratings of electronic components, usually for resistors, but also for capacitors, inductors, diodes and others. A separate code, the 25-pair color code, is used to identify wires in some telecom

    RESISTOR POWER RATING: –
    The Power Rating of Resistor Can Be Calculated Using the Formula: –
    Power(P)=V*1=I2r =V2/R
    The Larger The [Power Rating, The Greater the Physical Size of The Resistor.
    When Used in Ac Circuits the Ac Impedance of a Resistor Is Equal to Its Dc Resistance.
