Resource: Resistor Color Codes

Post by cj » Mon Aug 16, 2004 7:18 pm

Here is a little ryme for you to remember the colors.

0 Bad = Black
1 Booze = Brown
2 Rots = Red
3 Our = Orange
4 Young = Yellow
5 Guts = Green
6 But = Blue
7 Vodka = Violet
8 Goes = Gray
9 Well = White

First two colors are first two numbers the 3rd is the Multiplier times the Number of 0's. The 4th band is the Tolerance or Accuracy.

Just for BitPimps here is the alternate rhyme

Bad
Boys
Rape
Our
Young
Girls
But
Violet
Gives
Willingly
