Basic Electronics

  1. 1. Basic Electronics Resistors Bukit View Secondary School Design & Technology Mr Siraj S.H / Mr Ong Soon Gee
  2. 2. <ul><li>Resistors determine the flow of current in an electrical circuit. </li></ul>Where the resistance is low the flow of current is large . Where there is high resistance in a circuit the flow of current is small.
  3. 3. Ohm’s Law <ul><li>( I ) Current is what flows on a wire or conductor like water flowing down a river. Current flows from negative to positive on the surface of a conductor. Current is measured in (A) amperes or amps. ( V ) Voltage is the difference in electrical potential between two points in a circuit. It's the push or pressure behind current flow through a circuit, and is measured in (V) volts. ( R ) Resistance determines how much current will flow through a component. Resistors are used to control voltage and current levels. A very high resistance allows a small amount of current to flow. A very low resistance allows a large amount of current to flow. Resistance is measured in ohms. </li></ul>Resistance is defined as the ratio of the potential difference (voltage) across a conductor, to the current flowing through it.

  5. 5. <ul><li>Resistors are used to regulate current in a circuit. </li></ul><ul><li>Resistors are found in almost every electronic circuit. The most common type of resistor consists of a small ceramic (clay) tube covered partially by a conducting carbon film . </li></ul><ul><li>The composition of the carbon determines how much current can pass through . </li></ul><ul><li>Resistors are too small to have numbers printed on them and so they are marked with a number of coloured bands . </li></ul><ul><li>Each colour stands for a number. Three colour bands shows the resistors value in ohms and the fourth shows tolerance . </li></ul><ul><li>Resistors can never be made to a precise value and the tolerance band (the fourth band) tells us, using a percentage, how close the resistor is to its coded value . </li></ul>

  7. 7. <ul><li>Resistors can be connected together in two ways; series and parallel </li></ul><ul><li>1. Resistors in SERIES – </li></ul><ul><li>When resistors are connected in series, their values are added together:  R total=R1+R2   </li></ul>For example: 1K+1K+3K9=5K9 (total value)
  8. 8. <ul><li>2. Resistors in PARALLEL </li></ul><ul><li>When resistors are connected in parallel, their total resistance is given as:   </li></ul><ul><li>1/Rtotal = 1/R1 + 1/R2   </li></ul>For example: 1/Rtotal = 1/1K + 1/1K = 0.5K or 500 ohms OR = R1 x R2       R1 +R2        = 1 x 1 = 1        1 +1  = 2  =  0.5k
