11 thoughts on “Make: The Resistor

  1. An excellent Audio Visual supplement to the subject of resistors for anyone young or old, whom maybe be studying Basic Electronics.

  2. I guess it depends on your skill level, I found a useful little video, I enjoyed the paper resistor at the end, very informative.

  3. This is cool none the less.I am always looking for simple ways to get the kids involved in building/hacking/discovering. I am going to do this with them and teach them about resistors.

  4. At 5 minutes and free, I wasn’t expecting much, but at least mention voltage dividers, and maybe reference how resistors can change charge/discharge rates of caps. By explaining a voltage divider, at least newbies can get an idea how a volume knob works.

  5. I like it! But I have a MINOR problem… or two..
    1)Cant find my alligator clips! But I DO have a mutimeter!
    2)My Multimeter just says 1., the whole time, unless I touch the positive and negative ends togeter.
