Help: Determining What Resistor to Use


Recommended Posts

A resistor reduces a voltage by dividing the voltage with another resistor.
Reducing voltage with resistors causes them to heat. The heat is waste. If the current is high then since you want to reduce the voltage a lot, the resistors will become extremely hot.

It might be best to make a power supply for 100V.
