A common question that comes up about pull-up resistors: what value do you pick and why not just use a piece of wire? In this follow-up electronics tutorial, the bald engineer looks at how to pick pull-up resistor values.

https://youtu.be/EQtwsWJuUPs Understanding voltage dividers means understanding Ohm’s Law.  A common use for a voltage divider in most projects is to monitor a battery.  Say you are powering your circuit with a 9V or 12V battery. Microcontroller boards don’t do well with those voltages.   In a future video, we’ll come back and look at more circuits that can use voltage dividers. Episode Notes Correction: There is a mistake around 3:00.  I say “91 millivolts” and I should…
