(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Given two sets of load resistances and output voltages:

Rload = 108 ohms - Vout = 9.6V

Rload = 10 Ohms - Vout = 2.3V

Find the source voltage and the output voltage when R1 and R2 are equal.

When the resistance is very large, the voltage seems to be around 9.6. My assumption was that then the source voltage would be 9.6. However, that seems to be incorrect. I know how to solve the rest of the problem, by using the voltage divider equation ((Vin(R2/(R1+R2))) = Vout), but this initial part is very difficult for me.
