This question already has an answer here:
1) Why to use a LDO regulator when a simple voltage divider can do the job for stepping down voltage?
2) How do we set the current in voltage divider when use as regulator functionality ? Or
3) Can we calculate (theoretically) the current sourcing capability of voltage divider output ?
voltage divider output V(out) = Rb/(Ra+Rb) * V(in)
What is the current sourcing capability at V(out) node ?
