Solution - Calculate the Value of Shunt. - HSC Science (Computer Science) 12th Board Exam - Physics

Question

The combined resistance of a galvanometer of resistance 500Ω and its shunt is 21Ω. Calculate the value of shunt.

Solution

Given:

G = 500Ω

Req = 21Ω

To Find:

S = ?

Formula:

1/Req = 1/G + 1/S

Solution:

1/Req = 1/G + 1/S

1/S = 1/Req - 1/G = (G - Req)/ReqG

∴ S = ReqG/(G - Req)

∴ S = 21 × 500/(500 - 21)

∴ S = 10500/479

∴ S = 21.92Ω

Is there an error in this question or solution?
