    I have an open 3 ohm, 5 watt resistor (the blocky white cement type) used for a flash circuit in a Space Station. I blindly ordered a 3 ohm, 5 watt resistor and it is not what was expected (it is the round type and significantly smaller then the original type). I was wondering if there is much difference between the two (they both seem to be wire wound) and if the smaller round resistor is acceptable to use as a replacement. Any thoughts?

    Here is a pic of the resistor. The only reason why I considered using it is that I saw that Gottlieb uses a similar resistor type. I just was not sure about the Heat dissipation, that was the only variable that I was unsure of.

    Thank you all for your input and expertise. Specs are specs and numbers are numbers but why is not clear sometimes. I'm kind of a cheap bastard and would hate to throw it away instead of put it to use. In the future I will replace like for like. Thanks again.
