Resistors -  "resist" the flow of current
                   have units of Ohms
                   ohms value can be calculated with Ohms Law
                                 Resistance = Voltage / Current
                   have an associated tolerance - i.e. 20% 10% 5% 1% 0.1%
                   have an associated power capacity - how much can it handle
                                   Power = Voltage * Voltage / Resistance

Diodes  (rectifier type - for example) - only allow the flow of current in 
one direction
                   have an associated power handling capability
                    have an associated forward voltage drop 
                           (based on technology of the device)
                    have an associated maximum reverse voltage capability

want more - just ask

1950 model 3600
1953 model 3100
oletrucks is devoted to Chevy and GM trucks built between 1941 and 1959
