Which way do you install a resistor?
What happens if you put a resistor in backwards? Resistors lack polarity. There is no backwards.
Which way does a resistor work? A resistor works by restricting the flow of current, it can do this in one of three ways: firstly, by using a less conductive material, secondly by making the conductive material thinner and finally by making the conductive material longer.
Are resistors reversible? If I understand your question, then yes – resistors are reversible, in the sense that they can be connected to the circuit in either direction. Resistors are not like diodes or capacitors. They do not have a polarity. The conduct (or resist) current equally in both directions of current flow.
