How can I identify the power rating (wattage) of my scavenged resistors? Answered
I am currently making a mini guitar amplifier, from this instructable, https://www.instructables.com/id/Make-a-Sweet-Portable-Guitar-Amp/, and i need a 1kΩ resistor.
I have accumulated a few components by de-soldering and scavenging parts from old, and broken electronic devices.
When I found out i needed a 1kΩ resistor, I looked up the ring code for that value and scanned over my broken electronic circuit boards to see if i could find a match. Which i did, but i do not know how many watts the resistor is rated at.
The resistor in question is no more than 3mm in length. I know that quite a lot of resistors are more like 5mm in length.
Can you tell from the physical size what the resistor I have is?(I will include a couple of pictures)
