Hi Adam -- when you are talking about tollerance you say "This defines how close to the nominal value is allowable for the resistor when it is manufactured."

I would have tended to say that it defines the permissible limits of variation from the nominal value ... just sayin' :-)

@Adam: I hear you are putting together a team for EELive!

That's right -- the UBM formation marching team -- I''ll be the chief trainer (I'd take part myself if only I still owned a suit ... and tie ... and shiny black shoes ... :-)

Max now that would be a sight, maybe we should ask Karen if there is budget for a new suit for you :)

I simply cannot imagine ever wearing a suit again in the rest of my life... unless it's something extrodinary like my being called to the Palace to help the Queen out with a thorny technology problem or something like that... (she never can remember how to program the VCR, bless her)

Max that reminds me of something Prince Phillip (the Queens Husband) who is famous for his gaffes said to Cate Blanchett the actress who he asked if she could fix his DVD player as she worked in the film industry when he met her. He should have called you...

I heard in the old days they would take a bunch of resistors and test them.  The ones that were from +10 to+20% OR -10 to -20% of the nominal value would be sold as 20% resistors.   The rest would be sold as 10% resistors.  So if you got 20% resistors you had zero chance of getting the nominal value.   I'm glad 5,2,and 1% resistors are so cheap nowadays.....
