  1. So you are on this non-photograhic holiday and it is raining so there is no chance to torment me with IDs from the garden. Well, as you drove me bats yesterday here is one for you.

    King Phillip Came Over For Grandma's Soup.

    What is this a mnemonic for, and what bearing does it have on your dastardy deed of yesterday?

    :)

    I wonder if anyone remembers the one for the resistor color code. I bet Paul does. :biggrin:

    Bad Boys Rape Our Young Girls But Violet Gives Willingly. :wink:

    Just to clarify:
    Black = 0, Brown = 1, Red = 2, Orange = 3, Yellow = 4, Green = 5, Blue = 6, Violet = 7, Gray = 8, White = 9 (in most cases, the first two bands are the value, and the third is a multiplier of 10 ^ third band - so YVO = 47K Ohms). :Whistle:

    The only mneumonic I remember from school is "On Old Olympus' Tip Most Top, A One Eyed German Viewed Some Hops". It's the cranial nerves, but no way can I remember the names!
     
  12. I recall that it had to do with "tolerance", or how accurate the quoted resistance was. Gold is better than silver, but I don't remember the numerical values...:confused:

    you are correct. Gold is +-5% and Silver is +-10%

    This has been a fun thread for sure.
     
  14. Grabbing from memory, which at 71 is not that great: Quality? with gold being the highest and silver next.

    Tolerance. I believe that Gold = 5% and Silver = 10%. :biggrin:
     
  16. That's it, tolerance not quality. Course they are both pretty close to each other. Way to go Frank.

    My problem with resistor codes was that all the bands looked like shades of brown. At least to me, so I never learned it, I just tested them with a meter.
