    Hello, I am starting to learn about voltage dividers.
    My example is that of a 5V power source with 1mA current. I need 1.5V output.
    Can someone please give me an example of how I could calculate the two resistor values needed ?
    If I can see an example then I should be able to understand.

    Thanks kindly for any help.
