Question

A circuit board manufacturer rejects a 100-ohm resistor if its measured resistance is 0.15 ohm more than or less than 100 ohms. Resistors A and B are rejected. Resistor A’s resistance differs from 100 ohms by 0.15 ohm. Resistor B’s resistance
differs from 100 ohms by -0.78 ohm. How do the resistances of these two resistors compare? Explain.

1. A resistor is an electronic component that has the ability to resist the flow of current through a section or path of a circuit. The values of the resistors are:
• Resistor A = 99.85 Ohms
• Resistor B = 99.22 Ohms
The resistances of resistors A and B differ in the sense that A is within the acceptable range, while that of B is beyond the acceptable range.
A circuit board is a component on which all other electronic components are fixed in an electronic device. Some of the components are resistors, capacitors, inductors, integrated circuits, etc.
A resistor is an electronic component that has the ability to resist the flow of current through a section or path of a circuit. These resistors have a range known as tolerance.
The tolerance of a resistor is the range to which the resistance of the resistor is acceptable. It is always in addition to the main value of a resistor.
In the given question, the manufacturer rejects a resistor, not in the range of 100± 0.15 Ohms.
So that;
Lower limit = 99.85 Ohms
Higher limit = 100.15 Ohms
Given that;
resistor A’s resistance differs from 100 ohms by 0.15 ohms = 100 – 0.15
= 99.85 Ohms
resistor B’s resistance differs from 100 ohms by -0.78 ohm = 100 – 0.78
= 99.22 Ohms
Therefore, the resistances of resistors A and B differ in the sense that A is within the acceptable range, while that of B is beyond the acceptable range.
