need some basic help with resistors and arduino
I'm just starting an arduino uno that I got for christmas and I have almost no electronics experience. I have a breadboard that can give me 6 volts, but what type of resistor do I need to get 5 volts out of it, or is it possible to split the 5v pin on the arduino board. What I'm trying to do is recieve an input from 2 buttons. I tried searching for it on google and found nothing. Let me know if I posted in the wrong section too, because I wasn't quite sure if the Tech section is right. Thanks in advance.
