D. Resistors: While all wires and components have some resistance, resistors are specifically designed to resist the flow of current. They are cylindrical shaped components with leads at either end. The resistance in Ohms (W) associated with the resistor is specified by a color code in the form of bands painted on the body of the resistor (see Figure 2.4). The first band, located nearest the end of the resistor, specifies the first significant digit of the resistance. The second band specifies the second significant digit, and the third band indicates the power of ten by which the two-digit number is multiplied to obtain the resistance value. The fourth band designates the tolerance. A gold band in this position means that the actual resistance value is equal to the color code value plus or minus 5%. A silver band represents a tolerance of 10%, and the absence of a fourth band means that the tolerance is 20%.

Thus, when measured with an Ohmmeter, the resistance should lie between 4230W and 5170W. Some precision resistors are marked with five colored bands to give three significant digits before the exponent, and the tolerance code is reduced by a factor of ten; i.e., a gold band indicates a tolerance of 0.5% and a silver band indicates a tolerance of 1%. For example, a resistor with the color code of: brown-black black-brown-gold will have a resistance of 100 times ten to the first power Ohms +0.5%, or 1000W SW
