If a resistor is connected in a reverse bias does the current flow through it?

If a resistor is connected in a reverse bias does the current flow through it?

in fact, resistance is a bilateral element that can lead both ways, so there is no question of bias here

that taught you about the resistance to ask such questions. there is no problem of polarity for the resistors. so no problem of reverse bias. Resistance

has no polarity .. therefore, it does not affect current flow as far as polarization is concerned. the resistors are connected in series or in parallel.

Come on man, it’s not that a resistance is discovered right now. a resistance is not like our society that is biased or that makes the difference between people. it’s a good type unlike diodes that are racist (biased).

Resistors do not have polarities. so no question of direct or inverse bias. you can connect your power terminals to the resistor in any way. since the resistors are bidirectional, the current will flow through it.

hmmm ….

resistance is a linear element. this allows both the direction.

The resistance does not have the bias nature.

The resistors have no polarity. there is no “bias” in a resistance.

you are probably mistaken for the diode. the diodes have polarity. in the opposite direction, it does not allow the flow of current.

a resistor is a bilateral device and changing its connection laterally does not affect the circuit results and therefore an absolute current can cross it. and the polarization terms come when we will talk about diodes and transistors in short electronic circuits.

are resistances drive back and forth. For example, connect a resistor to a DC power source. measure the current using an ammeter. and repeat the same thing by connecting the resistor in the opposite direction, you can now see the same amount of current flowing. !!!

if you ask questions about polarity, resistors do not have polarity, they are bidirectional. so that they can be connected in any way and that the current always flows through them.

and if it is polarizing, the resistors can not be polarized, neither forward nor backward. the resistors are linear devices and can not be polarized. non-linear devices such as diodes, the transistors are polarized.


In reality, there is nothing like the inverse polarization of resistance because it is a linear element that allows the flow of current in both directions. but when we introduce a non-linear element (such as a diode) into the circuit, the current flows only in one direction. the current flow depends on the polarization of the diode; if it is forward biased, the current flows through the circuit, but when the diode is reverse biased, it acts as an open switch and there is no current in the circuit.

the resistance has no polarity or we can say that it is bipolar. we can connect the terminals of the resistors in any way in the circuit to pass the current through it.

There may be confusion regarding the physical presence of resistance where different colors are marked to identify its resistance. Here we follow left or right to see the value of the resistance. but, again when connecting to a circuit, we can connect in any way.

I hope I’m able to put my thoughts probably. I am happy to do it.
