Measurements in Electric Circuits Learning Goal: To understand the role of the internal resistance of various devices and the use of the ammeter and the voltmeter. Consider the circuit shown. All wires are considered ideal; that is, they have zero resistance. We will assume for now that all other elements of the circuit are ideal, too: The value of resistance is a constant, the internal resistances of the battery ( ) and the ammeter ( ) are zero, and the internal resistance of the voltmeter ( ) is infinitely large. Part A What is the reading of the voltmeter? Express your answer in terms of the EMF . ANSWER: = Correct Part B The voltmeter, as can be seen in the figure, is connected to points 1 and 3. What are the respective voltages between points 1 and 2 and between points 2 and 3? ANSWER:
