Well I heard that there is this numonic device for telling how many ohms a resistor has and it seems to have reached all over the world only my teacher says its flithy and won't tell us. Can someone tell me what it is?

hi,

it's just a matter of assigning names that represents the 1st letter of every color code so that you can easily remember. i have attach a sample, i believe there is no universal or common name codes for that.

The "filthy" version uses different words for Red, Blue, Gray, and White. Blue becomes "but," Gray becomes "gives," and White becomes "willingly."

Hi,

If you think it's fun with carbon resistors, wait until you get to 1% film resistors with four stripes. Especially if they are on a dark olive body.

If you want the complete version including tolerance it's:

0 = Black = Bad
1 = Brown = Boys
2 = Red = Rape
3 = Orange = Our
4 = Yellow = Young
5 = Green = Girls
6 = Blue = But
7 = Violet = Violet
8 = Grey = Gives
9 = White = Willingly
5% = Gold = Get
10% = Silver = Some
20% = none = Now
