How to make Simple LED ON



Aim: To make simple LED ON (small bulb ON) using basic components


Apparatus: LED (any color), Resistor, Battery, connecting wires, bread board, Battery connector



Circuit working: Connect the circuit shown as per the diagram. Connect the battery in the end. As the battery is connected, the LED will glow ON.




Conclusion: A closed circuit with proper connections and adequate value of resistor connected always completes its path of current and hence can make any color LED ON using this circuit.

The current in the path is given by the formula I=V/R
