Image description: 4 Band Resistor Color Code

This diagram shows you how to read the 4 band resistor color codes. The tolerance band has a slightly larger distance to the other bands, so the reading direction can be determined. The 3 band resistor does not have the tolerance band, it always has a 20% tolerance.
