Voltage Divider Calculator
The Voltage Divider refers to a device consisting of a resistor or series of resistors connected across a source of voltage and having one or more fixed or adjustable intermediate contacts where from any two terminals a desired reduced voltage may be obtained. A voltage / potential divider is a simple linear circuit that produces an output voltage (Vout) that is a fraction of its input voltage (Vin) mainly used in physics. Generally, Vout is used as a reference voltage. Voltage divider is also called as potential divider.
Vout = [ Rb / (Ra+Rb) ] * Vin
Vin = Input Voltage
Vout = Output / Reference Voltage
Ra, Rb = Resistances
