Can I use a higher ohm resistor?
In general, no.
Resistor values are carefully selected by the circuit designer to allow the circuit to work correctly.
While there is some allowable tolerance, it won’t usually be as much as a different value in the series..
What are the 4 types of resistors?
The types of resistors include:Carbon Composition Resistor.Thermistor.Wire Wound Resistor.Metal Film Resistor.Carbon Film Resistor.Variable Resistor.VaristorLight Dependent Resistor.
What color is a 100k resistor?

How do you know if a resistor is burnt?
Find the Value of Burnt Resistor by Four Simple MethodsScarp the outer coating.Clean the burnt section of the resistor.Measure resistance from one end of the resistor to the damaged section.Again measure the resistance from the damaged section to the other end of the resistor.Add these two values of resistances.More items…
What does R mean on a resistor?
ResistanceResistor’s Characteristics Resistors have the symbol on the right. Resistance is defined as the voltage developed across the resistor per ampere of current through the resistor. Resistance has a symbol of R measured in unit called Ohm which has a symbol Ω.
How do I know if I have a 10 ohm resistor?
For 5% and 10% resistors hold the resistor with the silver or gold band to the right and read the resistor from the left to the right. The first band will never be silver or gold.
What color is a 10 ohm resistor?
10R / 10 ohm Resistor Colour CodeValue10 ΩType4 Band Colour CodeColour CodeBrown, Black, Black, GoldMultiplierBlack, 1ToleranceGold Band ±5%
What is the purpose of the 10 ohm resistor?
This is supposed to help clean up the supply for the analog circuitry by removing the high frequency pulses from the Digital supply. A sneaky trick is to replace the 10ohm resistor with a ferrite bead.
