    A resistor is a two-terminal electronic component that opposes an electric current by producing a voltage drop between its terminals in proportion to the current, that is, in accordance with Ohm's law: V = IR.

    the name itself says that the resistor is something that resists..
    in the electronics resister is the one which resists the flow of current through it by developing certain voltage drop across it..

    Resistor is a device in which the current flow is made to be minimum when it is passed through it.According to ohm's law,we know that V=IR(or)I=V/R i.e.,current(I) and resistor(R) are inversely proportional to each other.While in the other case voltage is directly proportional to resistor.

    Resistor is a device made by carbon material which create a barrier for current by dropping voltage across it
    V=IR -- Ohm's law
    I=V/R }
