In this video, Zahraa demonstrates how to connect the LED to the Arduino board.
- [Instructor] Alright, so I'm going to use the breadboard…now to help me with the connection.…The very first thing that is pin eight is actually providing…the source.…So I start with pin eight…and I'll put it in the breadboard to start with.…So I'm going to connect pin eight…to one side of the resistor.…The resistor I'm using is 330 ohm.…So in order to keep the connection,…I'm going to use the same line…where the blue wire is connected to.…
So here's where I'm going to connect it.…So one outside of the resistor here.…And then the other side I'll move it…to the other section of the breadboard,…somewhere here for example.…You really need to make sure that you are in the same row…in order to make the connection.…Okay, so now I'm going to connect the other side…of the resistor to LED.…I'm going to connect it to the anode side,…which is the longer side of LED.…And then the connection needs to be…in the same line over here.…
So I'm going to bend the legs…so for you to see it a little bit better over here.…So the longer side goes to the same line of the resistor.…
