    A: The forward voltage on the LED is 3.5V, this means that when the LED is lit there will be around 3.5V across it. If you put two in series then across the pair the voltage drop will be 7V. With 3 it would be 10.5V. So to answer the first part of the question you can drive two LEDs from a 9V battery. To answer the second part, as the battery is at 9V and the LEDs have 7V across then the resistor must have 2V across it. Depending on how bright you want the LEDs to be will depend on the resistor value. Lets suppose we go for 20mA flowing through the LEDs, then there will also be 20mA flowing through the resistor. So using Ohms law, if V=2V and I=0.02A then R=100 ohms.

    A: Yes you can drive this LED from 5V however you MUST USE A CURRENT LIMIT RESISTOR. On the white USB lamp kit we use a 150 ohm resistor, which is plenty bright enough, you can go down to a 100 ohm which will give you about 20mA. If you are unsure about which resistor to use we have a nice tool in the resources section. The USB port can supply 100mA without negotiation so could run up to 5 white LEDs.
