Resistors Meaning and Definition in Wikipedia

A resistor is a limiter of the electrical current that flows through a circuit. Resistance is the restriction of current. Often in a resistor the electrons that pass through the resistor are changed to various kinds of energy. The most common forms of energy that electrons are converted to are heat and light. For example, in a light bulb there is a resistor made of tungsten which converts the electrons into light.

Resistors can be linked in various combinations to help make a circuit:
