What happens if an LED is connected to a supply voltage greater than its voltage drop?

My understanding of resistance and voltage is horrible. I heard that with Kirchhoff's law, (in my words, please correct) the voltage used by the circuit must equal the voltage supplied. For example, ...

How to improve my curve fitting for an LED in spice

I have an LED that I'm working with, actually it's not a discrete part but on silicon. Anyway all I have is a curve for it and I was trying to work up a spice model in LT-spice. I followed this ...

Is it possible to calculate a diode's V-I curve?

the other day I was confused because I din't get how an led has different voltage drop's depending on the resistance of a resistor and the voltage supplied by the battery. But then someone answered my ...

Charlieplexing: a LED producing light very slightly, although it shoudln't, based on its forward voltage

I have a display of a few LEDs, using charlieplexing: The display devices don't have any other parts, and don't have any space to place any parts either. The resistors are on the wires A, B and C ...

Capacitor not reaching supply voltage with LED in series

Totally new to electronics here. Without the red LED "charging indicator", the capacitor charges fully to 10V, but with the diode the capacitor maxes out at about 8.42V. I don't understand why the ...
