Blinking LED

Project Members: 
Anirban Sen

I made my LED light blink green using the arduino board.

Components used:
The 220 ohm resistor
The ground and live wires
The pre-coded program in the Arduino environment.
The USB Cable
The bread board
The 2 rubber bands
The blue wire to complete the circuit
The green LED

I used the USB cable to connect the assembled components to my laptop to upload the code to the arduino board. Here is the code that was used:

* Blink
* The basic Arduino example.  Turns on an LED on for one second,
* then off for one second, and so on...  We use pin 13 because,
* depending on your Arduino board, it has either a built-in LED
* or a built-in resistor so that you need only an LED.

int ledPin = 13;                // LED connected to digital pin 13

void setup()                    // run once, when the sketch starts
  pinMode(ledPin, OUTPUT);      // sets the digital pin as output

void loop()                     // run over and over again
  digitalWrite(ledPin, HIGH);   // sets the LED on
  delay(1000);                  // waits for a second
  digitalWrite(ledPin, LOW);    // sets the LED off
  delay(1000);                  // waits for a second

Looks Good! Please separate the components into a different section though. Refer to my example report for guidance.
