This is a very important thing to know if you're looking to get into electronics.
Ohms is the measurement used for the amount of resistance of a resistor.

LED's do not explode.. Atleast not from my experience of blowing LED's out....
If you are running a high-joule capacitor bank through a tiny LED, yes, good chance that it will explode.

If LED's were able to explode, I would have made LED bombs long ago. :) Thanks for the tutorial.

Ahah glad you liked it, but I guess I was kind of over-exaggerating about the "explode" part ;P

It's good. I'm 16, congratulations, and keep writing instructables... Im actually researching the mathematics and construction of electromagnetic coils. I am trying to accomplish a 2-3 tesla magnet.. The biggest magnet in the world is over 50 tesla.. To see how much one tesla is, compare the strongest neodemium magnet you can find. That's one tesla in strength.

Just think. Mine will be over 1 tesla. (Preferably 2 tesla)

Anyway. I learned something.
