I have this voltage divider circuit:
Vin = 5V --- | < R1 = 10K > | +----o Vout | < R2 = 510R > | --- - GND
and this formula for finding Vout:
Vout = (Vin x R2) / (R1 + R2)
My question is about Vin x R2. What does the number resulting from Volts x Resistance represent? Using my circuit, I get the following:
5 x 510 = 2250 / (10000 + 510) = 0.24V
What is 2250? is it just a thing, or is it something? I’m guessing some kind of resistance?
