Resistors In Series?
Have you ever come across resistor values that you can’t get from your local electronic suppliers? I believe you would definitely came across one if you have been a seasoned electronic repairer. Those values are different from the one that you can easily find from the market. Let’s take this for example, you can easily get 10, 12, 15 18, 22 , 27 ohms ….from the market but what if you found a resistor that is rated at 24 ohm opened circuit and it is located in the power supply section? You can’t get it from the market so what would you do?
Simple, just connect two 12 Ohms resistor in series and you will get 24 ohms. If you read the basic electronic books there are formula given not only in series but for parallel too! So in future don’t despair if you can’t find the original value for the equipment. Use either resistor in series or parallel will usually find the solution. Isn’t electronics is interesting?
