Resistor color chart that you favor most ...

<< < (4/4)

Well this is what I had in mind ,  its the larger that I found so far.

Tip ,  if you plan to print something like that, set the printer to high quality.
And the most important ... use as Gloss paper ..Photographic quality paper ..

I am still looking , for the best chart ...  if there is one ..

The best hardware chart ....  ;D ;D ;D ;D

Here is a useful way to keep the colour code in your head.

0      1       2     3         4        5       6     7       8     9
Black Brown Red Orange Yellow Green Blue Violet Grey White
Bye Bye Rosie Off You Go Bristol Via Great Western

My old school Physics teacher was a dirty minded sod, he taught us this to remember the light colour spectrum Roll Over Your Great Big Innocent Virgin!

I'm among those who have the codes in my head - I can't imagine having to whip out an iphone, chart, card, or go to a computer to decode a resistor.

Most people memorize a ten word phrase, but that is awkward - to get to grey, you have to think B___ B___ R____ O___ Y___ G____(No, not that one!)  B___V____G  Ah, that's it.  Grey is 8.

Back when I took Vocational electronics in High School, I learned a silly system that associated each color with a number.  After a while, I, just like a previous poster, just think "five" and "Green" at the same time.
