Can this LED be powered by 6V and if so what series resister value would be required? What current would this circuit use? Thanks Andrew.

What is the voltdrop across the LED at 2mA. What is the supply volatage range?
Asked by: Anonymous
maximum forward voltage at 2mA is 2.5V(2.1V for yellow)but voltages and current are all dependant on supply voltage and resistance in circuit.
