An Unknown Resistance is Placed in the Left Gap and Resistance of 50 Ohm is Placed in the Right Gap of a Meter Bridge. the Null Point is Obtained at 40 Cm from the Left End. Determine the Unknown Resistance. - HSC Science (Computer Science) 12th Board Exam - Physics

Question

An unknown resistance is placed in the left gap and resistance of 50 ohm is placed in the right gap of a meter bridge. The null point is obtained at 40 cm from the left end. Determine the unknown resistance.

Solution

Given:

R = 50 Omega

l_X = 40 cm = 0.4 m

l_R = 60 cm = 0.6 m

To find: Unknown resistance (X)

Formula:  X=R l_X/l_R

Solution:

X=(50xx40)/60

X=100/3

X=33.33 Omega

The value of unkown resistance is 33.33 Ω.

Is there an error in this question or solution?
