I am a beginner, so I may have made a horrible mistake in my diagram, but I am trying to learn.
According as I have figured it, I am having an issue wherein I need a resistor rated for a minimum of about 1.07 Watts; this is well, however, I do not have any resistors rated that highly heat-wise. I figured that I could just use a group of five 1/4W resistors, similarly to how a pair of two different resistors adds to a higher resistance.
*That does say 20kΩ and 29.6kΩ in the schem.; I have no idea why I opted to not write the capital omega in those two places.
