Short Note

Answer the following question.
What would you suggest to a student if while performing an experiment he finds that the pointer/needle of the ammeter and voltmeter do not coincide with the zero marks on the scales when the circuit is open? No extra ammeter/voltmeter is available in the laboratory.


This is called the zero error of the scale of ammeter or voltmeter. If there is a zero error, then this error is subtracted from the value that depicts when the circuit is closed, otherwise, the accurate current or potential difference will not be recorded.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
