How easy is it to kill a resistor?

<< < (3/3)

williefleete:
when resistors fail their resistance usually increases even if they did, such high value resistors are pretty much indestructible and a 47k resistor would need at least 150 volts to double exceed the power rating of that particular resistor assuming its a 0.25 watt jobby
the kind of voltages in a kit is usually on the order of tens of volts at most and those resistors should be fine
