Resistor for dummies

13.01.2017

At first, resistor sounds like a not wanted property but in reality it’s a compelling characteristic. Each body or object has a specific resistance. A piece of wire has a relatively low resistance which is why it conducts electricity quite well. With the help of resistors, the current flow can be manipulated or you can […]
