What is a 470 Ohm resistor?

A 470 Ohm resistor is an electrical component that provides resistance to the flow of electric current. The resistance value of 470 Ohms indicates that it limits the current flow to 470 Ohms under a specific voltage. Resistors are typically made of materials such as carbon or metal film and are widely used in electronic circuits to control current levels, divide voltage, and perform other functions.
