ng_moonmoth: 45 ohms, 0.05% tolerance (not in my country)
[personal profile] ng_moonmoth
[personal profile] solarbird is accumulating and posting daily an impressively comprehensive collection of links to articles concerning the present administration's effort to implement a fascist police state. If you find this abhorrent, and would like to better inform yourself, whether to take action or simply to be better prepared to deal with the effects, the link posts are tagged "fascism watch" on LiveJournal and Dreamwitdth.

People who will be much happier if this country resumes moving toward what it could be, rather than what it has become: please help by boosting the signal as far and wide as you can. The more people who read the linked articles, the more prominent they will become in the search engine results. And that's a great way to help flush the fake news back down into the sewer from which it emerged.

Thank you for the reading suggestion. I want to be informed and and when I'm able, take action. I appreciate the link!

I only remember enough from my Novice license studies mumble-some years ago to think that each color is a digit and they give the rating in ohms. Let's see...

All I get is 45±10%(Ω). Does that have a hidden meaning, or is there another reading? If it refers to the popular vote, wasn't it closer than that? I don't remember the electricoral count...or is that the punoint?

So 45 = ??

Resistor Color Code Calculator has only three standard tolerance values:
None: 20%
Silver: 10%
Gold: 5%

They add:

The fourth band indicates the tolerance of the resistor +/- 20%, 10% or 5%. In most cases, there are 4 color bands. However, certain precision resistors have 5 bands or have the values written on them, refining the tolerance value even more. There is no standard (TANS) however, for the 5th band. From one manufacturing company to another, the 5th band may indicate 2%, 1%, 1/2% or even closer, according to their own standards. Color bands are usually found on resistors that have a wattage value of 1/8 to 2 watts; though it is rare, there are some 5 watt resistors that are banded. There are also some capacitors that are color coded. See our Capacitor Color Code Calculator.
