100K 5% Carbon Film Resistor Value Distribution

It is well understood that resistors are typically binned in such a way that for a given tolerance the actual resistance values are distributed within the specified tolerance but are outside the range of the next tighter tolerance specification. So for instance, when you buy a bunch of 5% 100K resistor, you can expect the values to be between 95K and 99K or between 101K and 105K. Values between 99K and 101K will be missing as they are binned as 1% resistors. Continue reading ‘100K 5% Carbon Film Resistor Value Distribution’ »

An Alternative Illustration of Prime Number Distribution

Prime number theorem dictates the asymptotic behavior of prime number distributions. In layman terms, the distance between prime numbers increases at a logarithmic pace. This gives the familiar logarithm figure. Continue reading ‘An Alternative Illustration of Prime Number Distribution’ »
