    1. Given the nominal values and tolerances in Table 3.4.1, determine and record the corresponding color code bands.

    2. Given the color codes in Table 3.4.2, determine and record the nominal value, tolerance and the minimum and maximum acceptable values.

    3. Obtain a resistor equal to the first value listed in Table 3.4.3. Determine the minimum and maximum acceptable values based on the nominal value and tolerance. Record these values in Table 3.4.3. Using the DMM, measured the actual value of the resistor and record it in Table 3.4.3. Determine the deviation percentage of this component and record it in Table 3.4.3. The deviation percentage may be found via: Deviation = 100 * (measured − nominal)/nominal. Circle the deviation if the resistor is out of tolerance.

    4. Repeat Step 3 for the remaining resistor in Table 3.4.3.
