Hey,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Im new and this is just a simple question.

I want to make a voltage divider circuit to power a 3V dc motor using a 9V battery supply. However the motor draws 0.20amps when there is no load. In conjunction with the voltage divider equation V(out) = (R2 * V(in) )/ (R1+R2) , how to ensure that enough current is supplied to the motor? Also I've read that I will need to take into account the resistance of the motor as well! How do I do this and which resistors should I use?

Thanks alot for your help,
