Resistor banner


The resistor is a current limiting component. When the resistor is connected to the circuit, it will limit the amount of current passing through the branch circuit.

The ability of the resistive component to limit the passing current, is called the resistence. The resistor with unchangable resistance is called the fixed resistor; The resistor with changable resistance is called the potentiometer or the variable resistor.
