Ammeter is inserted in series into a circuit – measured current flows through it. R emf A Process of measuring requires charges to do some work: Internal resistance r int 0 = RI emf No ammeter: R emf I = With ammeter: 0 int = RI I r emf int r R emf I + = Internal resistance of an ammeter must be very small Ammeter Design: r int
