How do I reduce DC voltage with resistors?

Answer DividerTwo resistors, connected in series, form a divider that can reduce a DC voltage to any desired value. Connect the free end of the first resistor to your positive DC voltage, and the free end... Read More »

Top Q&A For: How do I reduce DC voltage with resistors

How do I reduce voltage using resistors?

Insert a resistor in your circuit, in series with the component that needs less voltage. The resistor must go in between the voltage source and the component. Putting the resistor in parallel with ... Read More »

How do I reduce voltage with resistors?

Voltage Divider CircuitThe easiest way to reduce a voltage is to implement a resistive voltage divider circuit. By connecting two resistors R1 and R2 in series with the voltage source Vs, the volta... Read More »
