Ohm's law is calling for a 50ohm resistor. Could I use two 100ohm resistors in parallel or would that be too close?
I'm hoping to buy the resistors from Radioshack and looking at there supply they only have resistors ranging from 48ohm to 68ohm. I know I could just use the 68ohm resistor, but have also read that wiring resistors in parallel will reduce the resistance. So using two 100ohm combined should work. It just seems too simple and close to Ohm's law's outcome. Would this be safe for the LED?
