1Ω to 8.2Ω resistors:

E12 (10%) series resistors from 1 ohm to 8.2 ohms (shorthand notation):
(1RK), 1.2Ω (1R2K), 1.5Ω (1R5K), 1.8Ω (1R8K), 2.2Ω (2R2K), 2.7Ω(2R7K), 3.3Ω (3R3K), 3.9Ω (3R9K), 4.7Ω (4R7K), 5.6Ω (5R6K), 6.8Ω (6R8K), 8.2Ω (8R2K).

Note: all resistors above have a silver tolerance band (10% tolerance). 10% resistors are rarely used today - see this page for a list of the more commonly used 5% (gold tolerance band) resistors.
