Resistor Function Quiz
January 1962 Popular Electronics

January 1962 Popular Electronics

January 1962 Popular Electronics Cover - RF Cafe [Table of Contents]People old and young enjoy waxing nostalgic about and learning some of the history of early electronics. Popular Electronics was published from October 1954 through April 1985. All copyrights (if any) are hereby acknowledged.
Here is another electronics quiz for you to try. It covers the functions of resistors in various circuits. The quiz appeared in the January 1962 edition of Popular Electronics. I got 100%, just for the record. Having worked with tubes helps with figure B since it does not really have a direct transistor equivalent, but by process of elimination you can get it.
