Electrical resistance and conductance | conductors and resistors

Conductors and resistors

A 6.5 MΩ resistor, as identified by its electronic color code (blue–green–black-yellow-red). An ohmmeter could be used to verify this value.

Substances in which electricity can flow are called conductors. A piece of conducting material of a particular resistance meant for use in a circuit is called a resistor. Conductors are made of high-conductivity materials such as metals, in particular copper and aluminium. Resistors, on the other hand, are made of a wide variety of materials depending on factors such as the desired resistance, amount of energy that it needs to dissipate, precision, and costs.
