2.2k Resistor color code – Resistor color code

2.2k 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, 3rd color band is a multiplier and the last 4th band is tolerance band.

1stcolor RED = 2 (digit)

2ndcolor RED = 2 (digit)

3rdcolor RED = 2 (MULTIPLIER)

4thcolor 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

                                                

= 2.2kohm 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.
