Resistors And Belonging Applications A small electronic device that does wonders that what resistor is. You donâ€™t see it around you every day but the very fact of our life is we need it every day. Without resistor you cannot spend a single day of your life. Confused? Well resistors are used in circuit and circuits are made-up of resistors. The main work of resistor is to control the flow of electricity in device. Basically every electronic equipment needs circuit and ultimately resistor. However, types of resistors are depends on the components and the need of its electrical flow. There are several Resistors applications that we would read later in this article. As said earlier there are types of resistors available in market and need of component so decides which resistor will be applicable in which resistor. There is known passive component resistor which popularly use for various applications. Its main task is to restrict the flow of electricity in circuit. This type of resistors doesnâ€™t own electricity but it passively controls the flow of electricity passing in circuit. As resistor control the flow it controls the flow of electricity. When resistance power is lower the flow of electricity in circuit is higher and when resistance power is higher flow of electricity in circuit will be slow or lower. Electronic applications that we use in a home use high resistance power through quality resistor which controls the flow of electricity. Thanks to technology market is full with different types of resistors that used in different types of applications. A resistor an application decides which types of resistors do it requires. In other words circuit resistors are bought on the basis of current flow it will need. One of the common resistors that is made up with clay and carbon. This type of resistor is generally known as carbon composition. The proportion of clay and carbon will decide the ability of controlling current. As said earlier types of resistors are depend upon types and need of current flow in applications. However we can classify these resistors in two basic categories. One is fixed and another is variable. Whether resistor is fixed or variable can be decided by three factors, material used in resistor, its resistance value and power.
Few names of different types of resistors such as carbon, film, wires, variable and featured resistors are name to few. Among all the said resistors carbon is the most popular resistor. There are two advantageous of carbon resistor that has made it popular among electricians. One is that is easily available in the market and second it is pocket friendly. Apart from this carbon resistor film resistor is also quite popular and used in several applications. The other type of resistor is wire wound which is used in industries when low resistance power is required. On the other hand variable resistors are also famous for circuits which need little adjustments. One more type is precision resistor. Precision resistors are mainly used in ultrasound, imaging and various other biomedical technological equipments.
