Solution

Given:-

N = 50, A = 12 cm2 = 12 x 10-4 m2,

B = 0.025 Wb/m2,

C = 15 x 10-10 Nm/degree

To find:- Sensitivity (Si)

Formula: Si = NAB/C

Calculation: From formula,

`S_i=(50xx12xx10^-4xx0.025)/(15xx10^-10`

`thereforeS_i=10^6"div/A"`

The sensitivity of a moving coil galvanometer is 106 div/A.
