How can I identify what kind of resistors I have? Answered
Recently I have been trying to identify and categorise all my scavenged electronic components.
I know how to identify the values and tolerances of the resistors by using the colour bands, but some of the resistors have different 'body' colours. I know the standard beige/brown ones are carbon film and metal film resistors are often blue. But I have some other colours, which I would guess are also metal film-but I don't know, they are all shown and labelled in the picture.
Let me know if you think you know what they all are.
From left to right:
1st is a standard carbon film
2nd I'm sure is a metal film resistor
3rd: ??its a slightly greeny aqua colour
4,5,6,7th:??? these are a torqoise green type colour
8th: ??? this is lime green
