I'm a total beginner when it comes to electrical engineering and I'm getting slightly confused with circuits and LEDs in particular (or probably my whole 'understanding' of electronics but I hope it's just LEDs).
Side note: I'm not intending to play with mains voltage for now, I'm just trying to get the theory down.
So, my question is: Do LEDs care about getting (way) too much volt?
From my understanding, this circuit should feed 20 mA to each LED (240V / 12000 Ohm = 0,02A)
However I'm not using any kind of voltage dropper or anything, the LEDs are still getting a pretty high current ( 240 V / 6 components = 40V per LED, minus the x Volt they drop(?)).
So my question is: Do LEDs actually care if they have that high amounts of current passing through them, as long as the Ampere value is fairly low?
