What is the significance of 4.7 in electronics? Answered
Why are most electronics components available in multiples of of 4.7? I've been noticing this a lot recently when looking for components, and it seems like an odd choice to be a common division, seeing as it doesn't divide nicely, and isn't a particularly easy value to work with.
If anyone knows why 4.7 is one of the most common values, I'd be interested to know.
