Determining Resistor Values

Resistor values are read using the color bands on the body of the resistor. The first band is the one nearest the end of the resistor. Start reading from this band. The first band represents the first significant number, the second band, the second significant number and the third band is the multiplier. If the third band is gold or silver this indicates a multiplier value of .1 or .01 respectively.

Silver 10%
No Band 20%

Example: A resistor with the color bands of Red, Red, Orange, Silver
1st Number Red = 2
2nd number Red = 2
3rd Number Orange = 3 multiplier (number of zeros) that equals 1000
Silver = 10%
