1/2W Metal Film Resistor(10 pack).
Looking for the perfect addition to any electronics hobbyist’s arsenal? We have just what you need – our 1/2W Metal Film Resistor. With its excellent wattage rating of 0.5 Watt and tolerance of 1%, this Metal Film Resistor will help revolutionize your project!
A resistor is an electrical component that limits or regulates the flow of electrical current in an electronic circuit. Resistors can also be used to provide a specific voltage for an active device such as a transistor.
This 1/2W Metal Film Resistor is perfect for any project that requires resistance with good heat dissipation. This 1/2W resistor can dissipate more heat than a 1/4W standard resistor for those projects where a bit more heat dissipation is required.
Metal Film Resistor Explained
The above image shows you the inner workings of a metal film resistor. As you can see in the image above the more space there is in the metal film spiral the resistance will be low and when there is less space in the metal film spiral the resistance will be high.
The chart above shows how to determine the resistance and tolerance for resistors. The table can also be used to specify the color of the bands when the values are known.
