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?
