    Suppose that you have a 6.0 V battery and you wish to apply a voltage of only 4.0 V. Given an unlimited supply of 1.0 ώ resistors, how could you connect them so as to make a "voltage divider" that produced a 4.0 V output for a 6.0 V input?

    Solution Preview

    We need to create a potential drop of 4 volt across one of the resistors or resistor network.

    We have unlimited number of 1 Ohm ...

    Solution Summary

    The solution makes use of six 1 Ohm resistors. The voltage dividers are made for resistors.
