(b) An ammeter with an internal resistance of 1 is inserted in the network to measure i as shown in Fig. 2.121(b). What is i ? (c) Calculate the percent error introduced by the meter as An ammeter model consists of an ideal ammeter in series with a 20- resistor. It is connected with a current source and an unknown resistor Rx as shown in Fig. 2.123. The ammeter reading is noted. When a potentiometer R is added and adjusted until the ammeter reading drops to one half its previous reading, then R = 65 . What is the value of Rx ?

(a) Calculate the resistance of the (variable) resistor required to be in series with the meter and the battery. (b) Determine the unknown resistance across the terminals of the ohmmeter that will cause the meter to deﬂect half scale. 2.69 An electric pencil sharpener rated 240 mW, 6 V is connected to a 9-V battery as shown in Fig. 2.126.
