I just encountered the voltage divider a few days back. It was working, yes. But i'm confused that in my circuit,
I needed to output 1/2 voltage so I used equal values for the two resistors. And from what I've read, I could change the ratios to change the voltage. And I tested that, sure enough, it works.
But this is what confuses me, I was taught that resistors don't lower voltage, they lower current. And if they do have some voltage drop, it surely can't drop it by that much. So why does it work?
Any help will really be appreciated.
