Are you wondering whether the resistor needs to be before the LED in the circuit? That’s the most common question we get about this tutorial! Check out this video for an explanation of why it’s OK to have the resistor after the LED: https://youtu.be/NUKD9qESO58

Do you want to build the example circuit shown in this video? All the circuit parts you need are available on Amazon.com:

– Solderless breadboard: https://amzn.to/2Mv98hL

– LEDs: https://amzn.to/2WdswiI

– 47 ohm resistor*: https://amzn.to/2WhfkcC

– Jumper wire kit: https://amzn.to/2MoV60P

– 2xAA battery holder: https://amzn.to/2EUnSAi
