This energy is either dissipated as heat or is converted to light as in an incandescent lamp. Each resistor will have a power rating, beyond which the resistor may get over heated and may get burnt. The commonly used resistors in most electronic circuits are rated as ¼ Watt. Open and Short Circuits A circuit element with resistance approaching zero is called a...
