Resistor's capacity

Hey guys, i just got the Starter kit but there's seems to be a mistake with the resistors since the one's referred to in the book are not the one's shipped. Any help?

Use values that are close. For most purposes, the value is not critical. If really concerned, post here how the resistor is to be used, and the values you have available.

Some value between 150 and 1k for LEDs, practically anything from 500 to 50k for pull-ups or pull-downs...

BTW "capacity" is a property of containers, resistors have "resistance" and capacitors have "capacitance".

Because of their construction, resistors have capacitance, inductance and... resistance (which is, as H2G2 told us, useless)

I don't think the values are critical, so long as they're 220 Ohms, 330 Ohms, something like that.

(If they're 1000000 Ohms you might have a problem...)

And power dissipation. I'm still amazed at how many ohms they can pack into such small packages, some have millions of ohms in them.

I recently picked up a couple 1 gigaohm resistors. No doubt the only time I will see a billion of anything :D
