Resistor Code Calculator


Resistor Color Code Calculator

Resistors are measured in ohms. Color "bands" are used to specify each band. There are three bands and sometimes four. The fourth band is the tolerance (Gold or Silver) if there is no band the tolerance is 20%.

The first three bands are colored:

Black = 0   Brown = 1  Red = 2  Orange = 3  Yellow = 4 Green = 5   Blue = 6   Violet = 7   Gray = 8   White = 9

The fourth band (if any) is colored:

Gold = 5%,   Silver = 10%,  (NONE = 20%)

  •  To use this calculator simply select the color for each band from the drop down menus. Click "display value" for the result. 
  • To re-calculate, simply re-select any one of the drop down color bands, and continue...
  • The color bands one and two are NUMBERS BLACK = 0BROWN = 1 etc. (see colors above). EXAMPLE: BROWN, BLACK would be 10, while BLACK, BROWN is 1 (drop the 0). 
  • The third band is a (X) multiplier of the first 2 bands; Black = 1, Brown = 10,  Red = 100, Orange = 10K, Yellow = 100K, Green = 1M, Blue = 10M. EXAMPLE: Brown, Black, Blue = 10M Ohms.
  •  NOTE: The Black band is not used above 9 Ohms, Brown is the first band for all resistors with a value for 10 - 100 - 1000, 10,000  etc. EXAMPLE: Brown, Black, Red = 1000 Ohms not Black, Brown, Orange as this calculator will display as 1000 Ohms.

TFT Game by Areeb

if you are fond of doing paint and want to make something related to that. So Here is the project for you. This Project is a Painting Software Based on TFT touchscreen
This project have Many Feature like:- Various Color Choices Can Change pensizeDifferent games layout like | i}tic-tac-toe | ii}Word Game | ii}Complete LOGO Different Pen Shape like |i}line | ii}Circle | ii}SquareHelp Button For New User 
  Material needed:- Arduino UNO(can use mega also)Arduino TFT touchScreen Sheild (buy it here)How To Make :-This Project is Very Easy to make Just You Have To Fit the TFT shield on the Arduino And Then Just upload the code  /* * Arduino TFT Paint * by Areeb-ur-Rub * FaceBook Page:- */// Don't Change These information #include<Adafruit_GFX.h>#include<MCUFRIEND_kbv.h>MCUFRIEND_kbvtft;#include<TouchScreen.h>#ifdefined(__SAM3X8E__)#undef__FlashStringHelper::F(string_literal)#defineF(string_literal)string_literal#endif// These are the pins for some typical…

diy relay module

I If you want a relay module and you are thinking that you will buy it online here is a link : relay module
but as you see it is expensive i will tell you a very cheap DIY

material needed:-

vero board/prototyping boardrelay 12vdiode 40001 or 40007bc558 transistor9volt batterymale header pin or simple wire for connectingstep1:-
place all the thing on the veroboard as shown in picture or in schematic or in video
breadboard view
schematic picture

connect signal to desired pin of arduino 
and ground to ground pin of arduino
and don't forget to connect 9volt battery


if it is not working check the diode position and transistor position and also see ground connections

Visitor Counter

This Arduino project will automate the lights of the room and also count the person in the rooms  it also have self-intelligence that if there is no body in the room it will turn of the light
for example if 3 person enters the room then three person should exit also to turn the lights off
  Material needed:- Arduino board2 IR sensor  Jumper wireChassis (optional) 
Connect the IR sensor output on pin 14&19 (I am using Arduino Mega that's why I have connected  it to 14&19 you can change it as your needs in the program)

and the connect led or Relay module on pin 2 (you can change this also as per your need)

Then upload the code  #definein14//defining the in sensor#defineout19//defining the out sensor #defineled2//you can connect led module alsointcount=0;voidIN(){count++;Serial.print("Person In Room:");//it will print Serial.println(count);//+1 if a person enter in the roomdelay(1000);}voidOUT(){count--;Serial.print("Person In Room:");//it will print Serial.printl…
