RE: [TCML] confusion with measurements
To simplify the writing of large resistor values, the abbreviations K and M
are used for one thousand and one million. To keep the convention standard,
R is used to represent 0. Because of problems in seeing the decimal point in
some printed texts, the 3 letters: K M or R are used in place of the decimal
point. Thus, a 2,700 Ohm resistor is written 2K7 and a 6.8 Ohm resistor is
