Statement of a problem № 41158


The same galvanometer described in the previous problem may be used to measure voltages. In this case a large resistor is wired in series with the galvanometer, as suggested in Figure 28.29. The effect is to limit the current in the galvanometer when large voltages are applied. Most of the potential drop occurs across the resistor placed in series. Calculate the value of the resistor that allows the galvanometer to measure an applied voltage of 25.0 V at full-scale deflection.
