  • would need to make a 3 × 3 series-parallel network. And you can’t be sure that the oppos-ing effects will exactly balance. It would be better, in such a case, to make a 2 ×2 series-par-allel array of ordinary resistors.The color codeSome resistors have color bands that indicate their values and tolerances. You’ll seethree, four, or five bands around carbon-composition resistors and film resistors. Otherunits are large enough so that the values can be printed on them in ordinary numerals.On resistors with axial leads, the bands (first, second, third, fourth, fifth) arearranged as shown in Fig. 6-12A. On resistors with radial leads, the bands are arranged112 Resistors6-12At A, location of color-code bands on a resistor with axial leads. At B,location of color codings on a resistor having radial leads.
