Voltage Dividers

Note: I found this post while deleting old drafts I never got around to finishing. I have no idea where I was going with it. I think I had some insightful analogy to make that related a voltage divider to life, music, minds, or some really esoteric projects that I have since forgotten. If you happen to think of what that analogy could have been, please let me know.

The sad thing is, I didn't even get around to explaining voltage dividers.


This is a voltage divider.

If the input voltage, V, provides a voltage of 5 volts, and resistors R1 and R2 are equal than Vout will be half of V, or 2.5 volts.
