Maximum Voltage you can apply to a 1 kΩ, 1/4 W resistor

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

Things you'll learn:
  1. Concept of power in resistors
  2. Color coding of 1k resistor
  3. 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.
