Statement of a problem № 11370


In measuring a voltage, a voltmeter uses some current from the circuit. Consequently, the voltage measured is only an approximation to the voltage present when the voltmeter is not connected. Consider a circuit consisting of two 1550-Ω resistors connected in series across a 60.0-V battery. (a) Find the voltage across one of the resistors. (b) A nondigital voltmeter has a full-scale voltage of 60.0 V and uses a galvanometer with a full-scale deflection of 5.00 mA. Determine the voltage that this voltmeter registers when it is connected across the resistor used in part (a).
