How to Use This Calculator?

To use the above calculator, follow these steps:
1. First of all, identify all the colors and their positions in the resistor.
2. Now start by selecting a color for the first band. The options are listed in the dropdown menu labeled "Band 1". Choose the color that corresponds to the first band of your resistor.
3. Next, select a color for the second band by choosing an option from the dropdown menu labeled "Band 2".
4. Choose a color for the third band. This can be done by selecting an option from the dropdown menu labeled "Band 3".
5. Now, select a color for the fourth band, which represents the multiplier. This can be done by choosing an option from the dropdown menu labeled "Band 4".
6. Choose a color for the fifth band, which represents tolerance. Use the dropdown menu labeled "Band 5" to select an appropriate color option.
7. At last, select a color for the sixth band, which represents the temperature coefficient. This can be done by choosing an option from the dropdown menu labeled "Band 6".
8. Once you have selected colors for all six bands, click the "Calculate" button located below the dropdown menus.
9. Once you click the calculate button, the calculator will process the selected colors and calculate the resistance value based on the color code provided by the bands.
10. The calculated resistance value will be displayed in the "Resistance Value" section in the result area.
11. Additionally, the tolerance and temperature coefficient values also be displayed in their respective sections below the resistance value.
So, by following these steps, you can easily use this 6-Band Color Code Resistor Value Calculator to determine the resistance value, tolerance, and temperature coefficient of a resistor based on its color bands.

Formula

Here are the formulas, the calculator uses,

Resistance = (Color1 * 100 + Color2 * 10 + Color3) * 10^Color4

In this formula:

Color1 represents the numeric value associated with the first color band.

Color2 represents the numeric value associated with the second color band.

Color 3 represents the numeric value associated with the third color band.

Color4 is used as the Multiplier that represents the numeric value associated with the fourth color band, which indicates the power of 10 by which the calculated value should be multiplied.

The Color5 represents tolerance and the Color6 represents the Temperature Coefficient.

Example

Now, let's take an example to calculate the resistance value of a 6-Band Resistor.

We assume a resistor has color code like this -  Red(color 1), Black(color 2), Brown(color 3), Black(color 4), Green(color 5), Green(color 6)

Let's start solving this,

We know, Red = 2, Black = 0, Brown = 1, Tolerance Green = 0.5%, and Temperature Coefficient green = 50 ppm/°C

As, Resistance = (Color1 * 100 + Color2 * 10 + Color3) * 10^Color4

So, Resistance = (2 * 100 + 0 * 10 + 1) * 10^0 = 201 Î©

So, the calculated resistance value for the given color code is 201 Î© with 0.5% tolerance and 50 ppm/°C Temperature Coefficient.
