Resistors are everywhere - we would bet good money there's one in your hand or on your lap right now.  Unless you're old-school and still have a desktop computer.  Either way, resistors are one of the fundamental components of electronics and incredibly important to understand. In this tutorial, we answer the question, "how do resistors work?"

CircuitBread is joining the fight to help people more easily learn about and use electronics. With an ever-growing array of equations, tools, and tutorials, we're striving for the best ways to make electronics and electrical engineering topics more accessible to everyone.

Resistors are the most common component in electrical circuits. Have you ever wondered why? Let's take a look at what resistors are and how they work. Resistors are made of a certain material with a known conductivity, and depending on the conductivity it will be able to slow electrons down. This causes a voltage drop across the resistor. If we were to skip using resistors all together, our circuit would either melt or explode. These fascinating components as simple as they might seem are the most important part of any electrical circuit design.
