If the leads are long enough you could just poke them into the appropriate header holes. If not extend them with some wire soldered on.______Rob
a) Get some breadboards! There's a nice one available from....http://wulfden.org/TheShoppe/accessories.shtml($6, incl p&p to USA)
TO connect an LDR correctly it must be part of a voltage divider+5V ---- [ LDR ] -----* ------[Resistor] ----- GND
but I don't want to use a breadboard
Well as already drawn for you:QuoteTO connect an LDR correctly it must be part of a voltage divider+5V ---- [ LDR ] -----* ------[Resistor] ----- GNDSo, one end of the LDR goes to a +5vdc pin, one end of the resistor goes to a ground pin. Now the problem, the other ends of both the LRD and resistor must connect to the analog input pin you are using. As usually two wires won't fit into one pin hole, and you don't want to use a breadboard, then you must solder the connection between the LRD and resistor and then add a single wire from that junction connection to the analog input pin.Lefty
I have got a breadboard, but with no resistor, do I have to get one, why?
+5V ---- [ LDR ] -----* ------[Resistor] ----- GND
Is that a proper connection for the LDR TinkerKit sensor?
