LED Crossfade and Serial Monitor Values

I have a starter code outline, and a track list I am trying to achieve which is a laundry list of functions and displays and am having the worst time of my life:

Task List:
• Add code to the setup function to configure the serial port
• Add code to the loop function to cross fade the LEDS. Cross fade means that one LED gets brighter as the other LED becomes dimmer.
• Add code to the update_leds function
• Add code to the display_debug_info function
• Serially transmit the following data, displaying it in the Serial Monitor
• Display the analog write values
• Display the duty cycle percentage values
• Display the pin voltage values, using at least 2 decimal places
• Display the currents, using at least 3 decimal places
• Add code to the performCalculations function
• Calculate the duty cycle percentage
• Calculate the pin voltage values. You will need to write a mathematical equation to calculate the pin voltage, based on the analog write values. 255 represents a 100% duty cycle, which is 5V. 0 represents a 0% duty cycle, which is 0V.
• Calculate the current in each LED circuit.

Here is the starter code:

// pwm pins
const int redPin = 9; // red LED, connected to digital pin 9
const int yellowPin = 10; // yellow LED, connected to digital pin 10

// Analog Write Variables
unsigned char redAnalogValue;
unsigned char yellowAnalogValue;

// Control variables
int loopCount;
int wait = 50; // 50ms (.05 second) delay; shorten for faster fades

void setup()
{
/** add code to configure the serial port
*

  • Note: it is not necessary to set the pinMode for pins using analogWrite
    */
    }

void display_debug_info(void)
{
/** add code here
*

  • write the value of loopCount, red duty cycle, and the yellow
  • duty cycle to the serial port. Neatly label and format
  • the output.
  • If you want to space over a tab: Serial.print("\t");
    */

}

void performCalculations(void){
/** add code here to perform all required

  • voltage, current, and duty % calculations

*/

}

void update_leds(void)
{
/** add code here
*

  • use the analogWrite function to update the led brightness

*/

delay(wait);

} // end function update_leds()

void loop()
{
/* create a while loop that runs 256 times

  • the red led should become dimmer
  • the yellow led should become brighter
  • set redAnalogValue to 255
  • set yellowAnalogValue to 0
  • set loopCount to 0
  • The loop's boolean test condition should be
  • true 256 times. The loopCount variable
  • controls how many times the loop executes
  • while ( boolean test condition is true )
  • subtract 1 from the red analog value
  • add 1 to the yellow analog value
  • write the updated values to the leds
  • display debugging information
  • update the loop count
    */

/**

  • write a for loop that runs 256 times
  • the red led should become brighter
  • the yellow led should become dimmer
  • set redAnalogValue to 0
  • set yellowAnalogValue to 255
  • set loopCount to 0
  • while ( boolean test condition is true )
  • add 1 to the red analog value
  • subtract 1 from the yellow analog value
  • write the updated values to the leds
  • display debugging information
  • update the loop count
    */

}

Please go read the forum sticky post, then edit your post above to fix the code tags and add the other stuff anyone would need to be able to help you, such as some links to components and a schematic. You gave all that detail but forgot simple things like what kind of Arduino!

When is your homework due in?
