Determine voltage across and using voltage division rule. Assume that , , , and Solution: Please note that the voltage division rule cannot be directly applied. This is to say that:
Voltage Division Rule: The voltage is divided between two series resistors in direct proportion to their resistance. This simple rule can be used in solving simple circuits or in simplifying the solution of complicated ones. In this post, the voltage divider circuit is studied and some examples are solved to show how this rule can be deployed in solving circuits.
In this solved problem, four circuits are solved using voltage divider (the voltage division rule). Problems are arranged from simple ones to more challenging ones. It is shown how voltage divider can be used to solve simple problems.
