In a Potential Divider, does a high resistance in R2 mean a high voltage output?

  • 1 vote

I'm just confused as in one book it says how if the resistance of  R2 is higher than R1 then the Vout is high, but i'm thinking if the resistance is high, doesn't that mean that the current is low so less would flow to the output? :|
