A Resistor Primer Series: TEMPERATURE COEFFICIENT

In wirewound resistors, another selection factor is the temperature characteristic of the wire. The resistance of all materials changes as their temperature changes. If the temperature is lowered, resistance (typically) declines. In fact, if cooled sufficiently, the...

Resistor Primer: CONDUCTORS AND INSULATORS

All materials are either conductors or insulators; a material will either conduct electrical current, or impede its flow. Not all conductors are equally capable of supporting current flow. Copper is a better conductor than nickel. Silver is a better conductor than...
