For the below circuit according to Ohm's law the led will get 23mA.
What happens if the resistance is removed? How many amperes will the LED get? My assumption is that the wire has some kind of resistance as well...but how much ?

Current in that case would be (5- voltage drop across LED) /(Wire Resistance + Forward Resistance of LED) and will soon probably kill LED.
