INTRODUCTION TO RESISTOR
 A resistor is a two-terminal electronic component

which implements electrical resistance as a circuit element. resistor, a current I will flow through the resistor in direct proportion to that voltage.

When a voltage V is applied across the terminals of a

The reciprocal of the constant of proportionality is

known as the resistance R, since, with a given voltage V, a larger value of R further "resists" the flow of current.

Resistors can be either fixed or variable in value.
