## What does 4M7 resistor mean?

4M7 means, you guessed it, 4.7 Mega Ohms = 4.7 MΩ = 4,700,000 Ohm.

### What color is a 470K resistor?

470K Ohm Resistor Color Code: Yellow, Violet, Yellow, Golden. Resistance: 470K Ohm, Power Rating: 1 Watt, Approximate Maximum Current: 1.46mA .

**What does R mean on a resistor?**

Resistance

Resistance (R) is a property of a material used for describing the opposition provided to the flow of current. The higher the resistance provided by a material, the lower the flow of electrons or current through the material.

**What is 3.3 K as a number?**

K is the metric symbol for the prefix ‘kilo’. This means 1,000 of whatever quantity you are measuring. So when you see this on websites, 3.3K means 3.3 thousand or 3,300 likes.

## What color is a 47K resistor?

47K Ohm Resistor Color Code: Yellow, Violet, Orange, Golden.

### What color is a 33K resistor?

33K Ohm Resistor Color Code: Orange, Orange, Orange, Golden. Resistance: 33K Ohm, Power Rating: 0.25 Watt, Approximate Maximum Current: 2.75mA .

**What is the value of a British Standard resistor labeled with 4M7?**

BS 1852 coding examples | |
---|---|

R33 | 0.33 ohms |

4M7 | 4.7M ohms |

5K6G | 5.6K ohms 2% |

33KK | 33k Ohms 10% |

**Is R same as Ohm?**

The three most basic units in electricity are voltage (V), current (I, uppercase “i”) and resistance (R). Voltage is measured in volts, current is measured in amps and resistance is measured in ohms.

## How do I identify a 4.7 K ohm resistor?

The 4.7kΩ resistor shown here has color bands of yellow and violet to begin – which have digit values of 4 and 7 (47). The third band of the 4.7kΩ is red, which indicates that the 47 should be multiplied by 102 (or 100). 47 times 100 is 4,700!

### What is meant by 1.7 k?

1k means 1 thousand, Therefore 1.7k means 1.7 thousand that is One Thousand Seven Hundred (1700).

**What is the meaning of 4.2 k?**

This means 1,000 of whatever quantity you are measuring. So when you see this on websites, 3.3K means 3.3 thousand or 3,300 likes.

**What is 47K resistor?**

47K Ohm 0.25W High Quality Carbon Film Resistor (CFR) with ±5% Tolerance and Tin Plated Copper Leads. 47K Ohm Resistor Color Code: Yellow, Violet, Orange, Golden. Resistance: 47K Ohm, Power Rating: 0.25 Watt, Approximate Maximum Current: 2.31mA .
