12. Resistance Is Futile.

I have a whole stash of resistors from a kit. They're on strips and none of them are labelled. Well of course they are labelled but with 5 coloured lines around them. Great, now I can work out what they are, or so I thought. Even with an online resistor calculator I can't tell for sure. Some of the colours are a bit vague, or maybe its just my eyesight going. Is that a brown or a gold, is that red a shade of blue?

Anyway, I found a better way of identifying them. I just used an Ohmmeter to measure their resistance. Simples.

Now for a little chant: Ohm, Ohm, Ohm, Ohm....
