I’m trying to work my way through an introductory text on electronics. I’m looking at a chapter about voltage divider circuits, and my experiment produces the correct results but I don’t understand why. Here’s a picture of my test:
What I don’t understand is how the second resistor (the one on the left) can affect the voltage of what comes before it. It’s not intuitive, to me at any rate, that the voltage at one point in the circuit could be affected by something the current hasn’t even gotten to yet.
Hope this makes sense. If so I’d appreciate any enlightenment
