Definition
 7
Term
 The resistor color coding numerical value for gray is
Definition
 8
Term
 The resistor color coding numerical value for white is
Definition
 9
Term
 Explain the coloring striping system from left to right Band ABand BBand CBand D
Definition
 The first band (A) indicates the first digitThe second band (B) indicate the second digit.The third band (C) indicates the decimal multiplyerThe fourth band (D) indicates the tolerance
Term
 Explain the fourth band on a resistor and the color coding system used for that band (including percentages)
Definition
 The amount by which the actual resistance can differ is given by the fourth band, which indicates the tolerance, usually given in percent. Gold Indicates 5%, Silver Indicates 10%,  If there is no color band for tolerance it is ±20%
Term
 Explain the 5 band color code of resistors
Definition
 Precision resistors often use a five-band color code rather than the four code. The purpose is to obtain more precise Resistance values. With the five band code the first three color stripes indicate the first three digits followed by the decimal multiplier in the fourth stripe and the tolerance in the fifth stripe.
Term
 Explain the fifth band in the five-band color coding system of resistors. (list colors and percentages)
Definition

Brown ±1%

Red ±2%

Green ±0.5%

Blue
