Carbon composition resistors are made by mixing carbon particles with a binder molded into a cylindrical shaped, and then baked. Resistance decreases as temperature increases. Resistance is more prone to drifting than with other types. Standard 'classic' resistor. Sold in multiples of 5.
Values 100K and lower are 5% tolerance, values 100K and higher are 10% tolerance.
