Circuits Concept Map Supplement Voltage Current Resistance Power Energy Color-Coding of Resistors Example: Red: 2 Violet: 7 Green: 5 --.> 00000 Gold: 5% 2700000 Ω 5% 1. Complete the following chart using any 5 resistors. Resistor Color Code Predicted Resistance Actual Resistance Number Resistor #1 Resistor #2 Resistor #3 Resistor #4 Resistor #5 2. Put three resistors in series (one after the other) as shown. Label each resistor with its value. 3. Measure the overall resistance using the multimeter. Record this value: 4. What principle can you determine about overall resistance from your observations?
