I have the following vibration sensor:
It has one short/firm-er terminal and one long/flimsy terminal. Now the shorter terminal slides easily into my breadboard but the flimsy one clearly does not. A few related questions:
1) How do I go about connecting this to my breadboard (simply plugging it in doesn't work)? Do I have to solder a wire onto the flimsy end?
2) Why is this switch manufactured this way (with a flimsy end)?
3) Is it right to assume that the longer end is positive (+) and the shorter end is negative (-)?
