Hi. I continue to read, but a still a bit confused. I attached my 3v baterry to my breadboard circuit and used some jumpers to complete the circuit. when I measured the voltage, I got a reading of around .3 volts... this surprise me greatly and couldnt understand it.

I then attached my 2.6v LED into the circuit and lo and behold the voltage going into the LED was 2.7v and the voltage out was 0 (ok I now understand why it is 0), but dont get why the voltage is so low with no component in the circuit.
