Unformatted text preview: • Black =0 • Brown =1 • Red =2 • Orange =3 • Yellow =4 • Green =5 • Blue =6 • Violet =7 • Gray =8 and white=9 For tolerances Silver = +10% and gold = +5%. To measure the resistance of resistor The Greek letter omega is the universal symbol for ohms, the unit in which resistance is measured. Each resistor has four colored bands; the first three indicate the amount of resistance and the fourth indicates the amount of tolerance. The first step in determining the resistance relates to Band 1. Determine its color, note the digit value (0 to 9) of the color from the color code, and record the digit....
