A previous blog post showed how to analyze a resistive voltage divider. This example expands on the previous example to analyze a voltage divider that consists of any combination of resistors, capacitors, and inductors. The main impact of using capacitors and inductors in a voltage divider is that the gain between the output voltage and the input voltage becomes a function of input frequency. Additionally, the impedances for the components become complex numbers and require using the complex number capabilities of EngineeringPaper.xyz.
