A resistor is a passive two-terminal electrical component that implements electrical resistance as a circuit element. In electronic circuits, resistors are used to reduce current flow, adjust signal levels, to divide voltages, bias active elements, and terminate transmission lines, among other uses.
The Coding of a 1k Ω Resistor. ... In this lesson, we work this out for a 1k Ω resistor where ''k'' is the abbreviation for the prefix ''kilo'', meaning 1000. So, a 1k Ω resistor has a value of 1000 ohms and the number we will code is 1000. There are three steps for coding a 1kΩ resistor.
