# Resistors

Resistors are common electrical components that impede an applied electric current. Use Wolfram|Alpha to compute the resistance of resistors in parallel and series. Translate resistor color codes to and from resistance values.

### Color Codes

Translate resistor color codes into resistance and back.

#### Calculate the color code for a resistor:

#### Compute resistance from resistor color codes:

### Resistors in Parallel & Series

Calculate total resistance for resistors in parallel and series.
