I have a resistor that I need to replace that looks like this (4 color band resistor that is significantly bigger than the others) :
If I can read the colours correctly (brown / black / gold / gold) this should be a 1 ohm resistor, but it is considerably bigger than the normal resistors.
- Is this due to it being a higher wattage ?
- Can one somehow derive the wattage by looking at the size of this resistor ?
- Does the fact that it is grey also mean anything ?
