How do I check for bad resistors?

Disable the CurrentUnplug and turn off the device that has the resistor to prevent current from flowing through it. If current is flowing while you are testing it, you may receive incorrect results... Read More »

How do I organize resistors?

Small Parts BoxesBuy a plastic box with interior compartments large enough to hold your resistors. Choose clear plastic boxes with tight-fitting lids so they won't accidentally open. The best kinds... Read More »

How to Read Resistors?

Resistors are devices used in electronic circuits to provide a known resistance to the flow of electrical signals. They are used to scale and shape the signal that is passing through them to help a... Read More »

How do I add parallel resistors?

List the values of the resistors that are in parallel. An example set would be a 10, 20 and 30 ohm resistor. Add the reciprocals of these numbers: 1/10 + 1/20 + 1/30 = 11/60. Take the result and t... Read More »
