Resistance Color-code Calculator

Resistance Color-code Calculator

This Calculator determines the value of a resistance by clicking the appropriate color bands. The program is designed for normal 4-band carbon resistors with 5% and 10% tolerances. If there is enough interest in this applet, a high precision 5-band calculator is anticipated.
