The resistance of a resistor is indicated by four coloured bands, as shown in Fig (7). Reading
from left to right, the ﬁrst two bands represent the ﬁrst two digits, the third the multiplier
and the fourth band, which is gold or silver, represents the tolerance of the resistor. A B C D Figure 7: Four coloured bands enable the resistance to be determined Denoting the bands by A, B , C and D, then the value of the resistor (in Ω) is AB × 10C
where the numerical values of A, B and C are given by the colour code in the table. 6 Colour Value
