Question: A 1Ω resistance is in series with an ammeter which is balanced by 75 cm of potentiometer wire. A standard cell of 1.02 V is balanced by 50 cm. The ammeter shows  a reading of 1.5A. The error in the ammeter reading
Options:
 A. 0.002 A B. 0.03 A C. 1.01 A D. no error
: B

ip=Vl=1.0250
Voltage across ammeter = Vll1
=1.0250×75=1.022×3=0.51×3
The true current I1A=VAR=1.531I1A=1.53AError=I1AIA=1.531.5=0.03A

Question 2. The potential difference across the terminals of a battery is 50V when 6A of current is drawn and 60V when 1A is drawn. The emf and internal resistance of the battery are
1.    62V, 2Ω
2.    63V, 1Ω
3.    61V, 1Ω
4.    64V, 2Ω
: A

V= E - Ir
50 = E - 6r (1)
60 = E - 1r (2)
(2) - (1) 10 = 5r; r = 2Ω
E = 62V
