 Post subject: resistor wattage
PostPosted: 06.01.2005 07:52 
When I use the Resistor Calculator I put in
supply - 5v
voltage drop - 3.3v
led current - 20mA
The results I get indicate that a safe wattage for the resistors is 0.057 Watts.

I have looked on the Radio Shack website and there is no resistor with a 0.057 wattage. All I see are 1/2 and 1/4 watt resistors. Am I looking at the data wrong, or do I just have to look harder for a resistor?
