    Hi, can anyone explain to me how voltage-divider and current-divider work physically? Like in terms of forces, fields, potentials of charges... etc..

    Thank you!

    Yeah.. I know how to use and solve the them.
    But I'm just not quite understand how do they work physically.

    Thanks.
