Voltage divider

We want to design a voltage divider circuit to provide an output voltage Vo=5V from a 12V source as shown in the attachment problem, the current taken from the 12 V source is to be 100mA. Find values of R1 and R2.


Solution Summary

The values of the first and second resistor (R1 and R2) are determined in the solution for this specific voltage divider. The circuit provides an output voltage.
