Voltage Dividers

Design Challenge 1: Series Resistors

In this design challenge, we will build a circuit with a 5V source, 6.8 kΩ, and an arbitrary resistor. We will use the concept of voltage division to determine the resistance value of the arbitrary resistor when given a specific voltage drop across it.

Design Challenge 2: Controlling Current

Voltage dividers and resistors in series can also be used to control the amount of current that is drawn from a power source.
