Statement: What is the maximum voltage you can apply to a 1 kΩ, 1/4 watt resistor?

Things you'll learn:

- Concept of power in resistors
- Color coding of 1k resistor
- How much voltage you can input to the resistors

Electrical resistors are rated in terms of watts. Each resistor has a rated wattage. Here the power is 1/4 watt. Whereas the brown, black, red and gold represents the color code for 1 kΩ resistor.

According to Ohm's law, the power formula v = (R*p)^1/2 can be utilized to calculate the power.

Here,

v = 15.811 V.

So the maximum voltage that is applied: 15.811 V.

So that was all about the problem. Hope you learned it well.
