# 2.2k Resistor color code – Resistor color code

**2.2**k ohm resistor color code

**2.2k ****resistor color code** of the **¼ watt resistors** is explained here, quicker resistor color coding is always useful for every electronic engineer.

**2.2k ****resistor color code** of 4 band resistor, which is first 2 color bands is digits, 3^{rd} color band is a multiplier and the last 4^{th} band is tolerance band.

1^{st}color **RED** = 2 (digit)

2^{nd}color **RED** = 2 (digit)

3^{rd}color **RED** = 2 (MULTIPLIER)

4^{th}color **GOLD** = 5% (TOLERANCE)

**2.2k **resistors are the decimal resistance value, comparing with digit value, **2.2k** is much specific.

The first two RED bands are taken as digits

And the third band is a multiplier

= 2-2-00/1000

= **2.2k**ohm 5%

This decimal value is produced, when the multiplier value is divided by **1000** and also decimal come into play, then that zero make a decimal value between both twos.
