## LED Resistor Calculator | Required Value of Resistor for LED’s Circuit Calculator

### LED Resistor Calculator

The following LED Resistor calculator will help you to find the proper value of resistor for LED’s circuit to connect with battery.

#### Formula for LED Resistor Calculator

Resistor Value = (Vs – VF)/ IF

Where

• Vs = Input Supply DC voltage
• VF = LED Forward Voltage
• IF = LED current in mA (mill amperes)

If you want to know more about how to calculate the Resistors values for different LED’s circuit i.e., series, parallel, and series parallel, then read this interesting Article about the Topic. Note: It is too difficult to find the exact value of resistors that you have calculated. Generally, Resistors come in standard values. If you are not able to find the exact value of resistor that you have calculated, then select the next coming value of resistor that you have calculated, For Example, if the calculated value is 313.5Ω, you would use the closest standard value, which is 330 Ω. if the closest value is not close enough, then you can make it by connecting resistors in series – parallel configuration.

Update: you can also try this calculator Standard Resistor Closest Value Calculator instead of the above method stated in “note”.

Enter values and click on calculate. Result will display the required value of Resistor in Ohms (Ω).

 Enter your values: Source Voltage (Vs): V (Volts) Forward LED voltage (VF): V (Volts) LED Current (IF): mA (miliAmps) Resistor Value: Ω (Ohms)

If there is no resistor and supplied a source voltage greater than forward voltage, what will happen to voltage between i)a LED? ii) a Diode? or iii) BE junction of a transistor?<br />

calculater gives us result 33.3e+5 what mean by this plz understand me

1. Electrical Technology says:

Its mean 33.3 x 10^5 = 3330000 = 3.3M Ohm

3. Sid says:

Does this calculator work for rectified AC source voltages ?
