I know that in series the total resistance is the sum of the individual resistors. I assume that since R1 = 330Ω and R2 = 470Ω that I am taking the pot from 1Ω to 1000Ω and using a minimum value of 801Ω and a maximum of 1800Ω and using my voltage divider formula but that answers that I get don't match the measured values from the lab. In the lab I measured a maximum voltage of 8.13V and a minimum voltage of 2.65V. Can anyone offer any insight as to what resistor values I would be using for my voltage divider formula and why those values? Thanks.
