    Hi, I had to create a 7W amp circuit from a Velleman kit. In the handbook for that circuit there is a metal film resistor that is listed as a value of "1"

    The code for the resistor is White, Gold, Gold, Black, Brown

    I thought gold and silver could only be tolerance values

    Any help would be much appreciated, I just need to know the value for some calculations and to list in a report.

    Here is a link to a PDF of the kit: https://www.esr.co.uk/manuals/k4001.pdf

    Thanks

    It's probably 1Ω resistor (traditional 4 band resistor + voltage rating), try measure is via multimeter.
    Brown = 1
    Black = 0
    Gold = x0.1
    Gold = 5%
    White = 2000V
    So we have 10 times 0.1 = 1Ω 5% and 2000V

    Thanks for that, I thought it may of been a 1 Ohm resistor, unable to test it at the moment but will do so to double check, thanks again!
