Electricity - Getting Started

Getting Started with Electricity:

Before choosing a Digital Electronics Project, you should first familiarize yourself with the related technologies by taking the following steps:

FILL OUT THE BREADBOARD SHEET AS YOU WORK. Make sure the resistor you have is 500 ohms or less!

1) Build a circuit on a breadboard which includes a resistor, LED, small pushbutton. When you press the button, the light should go on.

2) Build a circuit on a breadboard which includes a resistor, 2 LEDs, and small pushbutton. When you press the button, the lights should go on. The LEDs must be IN SERIES.

3) Build a circuit on a breadboard which includes a resistor, 2 LEDs, and small pushbutton. When you press the button, the lights should go on. The LEDs must be IN PARALLEL.
