    This is so simple, I'm a bit embarassed to ask........but is a 15 Ohm resistor a different animal from a 15 kOhm resistor?

    What is the full "range" of resistance available in resistors?

    thx for helping a n00b!

    :)

    no they are not the same, one is 1000 times more resistance.

    Resistors more or less range from 10mΩ to 10GΩ, with 0.1Ω to 10MΩ being common.
    m = milli = 1/1000'th = 1E-3
    k = kilo = 1000 = 1E3
    M = Mega = 1E6
    G = Giga = 1E9
