# How do you read a resistor code?

## How do you read a resistor code?

Always read resistors from left to right. – Resistors never start with a metallic band on the left. If you have a resistor with a gold or silver band on one end, you have a 5% or 10% tolerance resistor. Position the resistor with this band on the right side and again read your resistor from left to right.

## What J means in resistor?

G = +- 2% J = +- 5% K = +- 10% M = +- 20%

**What is M in resistor?**

Every 1,000,000 Ohms is known as a Megohm (Mega = one million), abbreviated to the capital letter “M”. As a couple of examples; a 4,700 Ohm resistor would be written as either 4.7K or 4K7, and 5,600,000 Ohms would be written as 5.6M or 5M6.

**What EIA 96?**

The EIA-96 System Therefore the EIA-96 marking system has been created. It is based on the E96-series, thus aimed at resistors with 1% tolerance. In this system, the marking exists out of three digits: 2 numbers to indicate the resistor value and 1 letter for the multiplier.

### What is a 4R7 resistor?

4R7 Resistor color code / 4.7 Ω (Ohms)

### How to identify resistor?

1/8 Watt Resistor – 1.8 x 3 x 28: It handles 13.88 mA when connected to 9 V source

**How to decode a resistor?**

Decide which band is the first band.
