|In digital IC, a high is 5v while low is 0v. If we have 3. 4v at the output of an IC, it is said to be a float for it is neither High nor Low. To keep such an output voltage to a High condition, we need a pull-up resistor (a resistor connected from +5v to the output of the IC).
If we want to keep the floating output to a constant Low condition, then we connect a pull-down resistor (a resistor connected from 0v to the output of the IC).
