Check this out Metku resistor calculator

It shows you some diagrams and the type of resistor to use.

What in the world are you trying to ask?

After reading it several times I am still not able to make any sense out of it.

Next time think a little before typing. Then reread it after typing it. Just because it makes sense in your head does not mean others can understand it.

Also remember that "A picture is worth a thousand words" that means MS paint is your friend.
