I think a good place to start learning about this is the resistor lesson. If you are still unclear after that, I would be happy to answer any specific questions to the best of my ability.

I' am not all that good hower reading through theses questions I came upon yours: resister (the word:resist) in electricity it resite's the flow of electricity. Think of a water tub with an out let towards the bottom, and maybe another half way up. The one at the bottom will have more pressure, power If you put a tap (fawcet in america?) on it, think of that has a resister, with it being a tap which you can reduce or increase the flow it's like a variable resister in electricity. resisters have different values depending on the amount of current passing througth them
