(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 ? Ammeter
