Notes for Class:

Current limiting series resistor formula:
vIN – vLED / 30 milliamp = series current limiting resistor.

((5V – 3V) / 0.030) = 100 Ohm series resistor for
a 5V supply.
((6V – 3V) / 0.030) = 100 Ohm series resistor for
a 6V supply.

((9V – 3V) / 0.030) = 200 Ohm series resistor for
a 9V supply.

((12V – 3V) / 0.030) = 300 Ohm series resistor for
a 12V supply.

Change the mA to 0.020 if using a 20mA LED
