    Download the science_engineeringxxxxx.zip file from http://code.google.com/p/hobbyutil/downloads/list (the xxxxx will be the revision date). It will contain a resistor.zip file that has a console C++ program to help you design a voltage divider from the resistors you have on hand. The included document also has a simple resistor storage method my wife came up with that lets me find any resistor value I want in a few seconds. There is also an Open Office spreadsheet file that calculates resistance for round and rectangular wire; I find it handy for designing shunts.

    Edit 26 Jul 2009: redesigned the program and added the spreadsheet. The resistor.cpp program now does both voltage divider calculations and can find two resistors that can be used to make up a desired resistance value.

    Thanks for the tool. It seemed to fit in Resources better.
