capacitor voltage divider

Thank you all for the electronics wisdom that I lacked.
The plan has been laid to rest.
I'll take the transformer solution.
Back to the books.
Thank you

More information concerning capacitor voltage divider.

Thanks to all who responded to my question. The capacitors that I have are Nippon Chemicon CE (M), 105° C, 180 uF, 400V. I presume the voltage rating is for DC. They are 22mm diam. by 50 mm long with right angle radial leads. They have 13G208 as an identifier. A search for them in the Nippon Chemic...

capacitors for a voltage divider circuit

I would like to use 180uf, 400 volt electrolytic capacitors connected to 120 V AC line to provide 24V AC, through a voltage divider circuit to a 2.4 ohm (total resistance) 30 foot heating cable.
Are there reasons why this is not a viable alternative to a high current 24V transformer?
