I just started getting into electronics so I'm still a major noob. Any help would be much appreciated!
I have an Arduino UNO and have made a few basic circuits with LEDs and a small speaker using examples online. I recently learned a few of the electronic circuit equations like Ohm's law and am ready to start designing my own simple circuits.
I have a 1.5V-3V motor I'd like to try running with my Arduino. The issue is that the Arduino only has 3.3V or 5V power sources. I tried to use Ohm's law to figure out what kind of resistor to use, but I can't figure out what the resistance of my motor is. Am I wrong in thinking that a motor is the same as an LED? I assumed since both were diodes they would function the same way.
I'm attempting to make a simple source-resistor-motor-ground circuit, along the same lines as the simple resistor-LED circuits. I've seen people online say that PWM would work, but I wanted to try without it.
