How to calculate voltage drop across series resistors. 

Definition
Step 1: Determine Current of total resistors across the series. (I = Current/V=Voltage/R(t)=Resistance Total) I = V / R(t) I = 9 / (2k + 5k + 10K) I = .53 mA
Step 2: Now that we have the Current across the resistors we can calculate the voltage across EACH resistor. I = Current Vx=Voltage (x=Current Value across X Resistor) Rx=Resistor value(x=resistor#)
V = I x Rx
V1 = .53 mA x 2k V1 = 1.06V
V2 = .53 mA x 5k V2 = 2.65
V3 = .53 mA x 10k V3 = 5.3V
V1 + V2 + V3 = 9.01 (voltage is 9V only 9.01 because i rounded up from .529 to .53) At .529 you can see barely a difference:
V1=1.058V V2=2.645V V3=5.290V V Total= 8.993V
Also If the resistors are all the same value its easier.

Find the Resistance Total First then divide by Voltage.
* note * divide all Ohms by 1 then add together. Then apply Ohms Law I = V/R
Example V =28 R1=4, R2=4, R3=6 R1=1/4 = 0.25 R2=1/4 = 0.25 R3=1/6 = 0.16 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.16 = 0.66v

How to find voltage drop on a complex circuit. both parallel and series. 

Definition
First find total resistance of the parallel circuits (R1 xR2) / (R1+ R2) = Rt. Add that to the ohm in the series and it equals the total ohms. Now find total current using I=V/R. I = V/R. So I = 70 volts/70 ohms = 1 amp. Now calculate voltage drop using V = I x R So V of R1 = 1 amp x 57 ohms = 57 volts.

Definition
An attenuator is an electronic device that reduces the amplitude or power of a signal without appreciably distorting its waveform.
An attenuator is effectively the opposite of an amplifier, though the two work by different methods. While an amplifier provides gain, an attenuator provides loss, or gain less than 1.
