Resistor Color Codes
Resistor Color CodesMost resistors have colored bands or regions that indicate their values and tolerances. You'll see three, four, or five bands around most carbon-composition resistors and film resistors. Other resistors have enough physical bulk to allow for printed numbers that tell you the values and tolerances directly.On resistors with axial leads (wires that come straight out of both ends), the first, second, third, fourth, and fifth bands are arranged as shown in Fig. B-1. On resistors with radial leads (wires that come off the ends at right angles to the axis of the component body), the colored regions are arranged as shown in
