what is resistor
Asked by kauraaaradhana | 11 Dec, 2019, 07:11: PM
answered-by-expert Expert Answer
Resistor is used in electric or electronic circuits to regulate the current or resistors are used in potential divider in circuits
 
Figure shown above is a circuit, where a device is connected to electrical power supply of potential differece V through a resistor R.
 
If the device resistance is r, then current i passing through the device is given by,  i = V / ( R + r)
 
We can regulate the current i , by changing resistance value of R.
 
Above figure shows series combination of two resistances R1 and R2 is connected to power supply of potential difference V .
 
If we take potential difference across R2 , we get potential difference = V × [ R2 / ( R1 + R2 ) ] .
 
Above figure shows the resistance used in electrical and electronic circuits. Color code gives the resistance value.
 
Resistance is the property of resistor. Unit for resistance is Ohm
