Carbon Film Resistors
“What are the most common types of resistors?”
Resistors come in many shapes and forms. However, what is the most common type of resistors? Well, if you look hard enough, then you will find that Carbon Film Resistors make up the majority of resistors in use today. Carbon film resistors are cheap, plentiful, and have a wide operating range. However, they also are very prone to temperature fluctuations, which could prove disastrous in critical applications.
