meters can be combined together to a wattmeter: a meter which directly measures the power ﬂowing through resistor R4 in the circuit below where R] = 10 k9, R2 = 120
kQ, and R3 =10 kQ. 200 V; In this problem you will put together a wattmcter from an ammetcr with an internal
resistance of 10 Q and a voltage sources with an internal resistance of 100 k9. b) D. Exam #1 Prep Questions Show how you’d combine the ammeter and the voltmeter to measure the power
absorbed by a resistor connected between two points, A & B. Make sure you
include the internal resistance in your diagram. Provide a brief justiﬁcation for
your configuration choice. In the circuit above, R4 can take on values between 1 kg and 50 k9. Calculate
the maximum error you’d expect in the measurement of the power absorbed by R4 with this wattmeter. m“ Error = 73 '7, If you wished to measure R4 more accurately, what SINGLE change would you

power rating required to avoid exceeding the maximum? Assume the power
rating may change by 1/8W increments (cg. 1/8W, 1/4W, 3/8W, ete.). (Hint:
