Voltage Divider Circuit

In electronics, the most common type of circuit is called a Voltage Divider Circuit, and it reduces voltage by making use of components called resistors. A Voltage Divider can be utilized in various of applications, including the construction of a volume control circuit, the generation of reference voltage, and many more applications. In analogue circuits, Voltage Dividers are also utilised to get variable voltage outputs from the circuit. In this circuit, the value of the input voltage is transformed into another value of voltage, and it functions correctly regardless of whether the input voltage is AC or DC.

Voltage Divider Formula

Vout = Vin*R2/(R1+R2)


Vin is the source voltage, measured in volts (V).

R1 is the resistance of the 1st resistor, measured in Ohms (Ω).

R2 is the resistance of the 2nd resistor, measured in Ohms (Ω).

Vout is the output voltage, measured in volts (V).
