CONVERSION OF GALVANOMETER 
INTO AMMETER


  Since Galvanometer is a very sensitive instrument therefore it can’t measure heavy currents. In order to     convert a Galvanometer into an Ammeter, a very low resistance known as "shunt" resistance is     connected in parallel to Galvanometer. Value of shunt is so adjusted that most of the current passes     through the shunt. In this way a Galvanometer is converted into Ammeter and can measure heavy     currents without fully deflected.










VALUE OF SHUNT RESISTANCE

 
















Let resistance of galvanometer = Rg and it gives full-scale deflection when current Ig is passed through     it. Then,

Vg = IgRg -------(i)

    Let a shunt of resistance (Rs) is connected in parallel to galvanometer. If total current through the     circuit is I.



























Then current through shunt:

Is = (I-Ig)

    potential difference across the shunt:

Vs= IsRs


or 
              Vs = (I – Ig)Rs -------(ii)

    But

V=Vg
(I - Ig)Rs = IgR



CONVERSION OF GALVANOMETER INTO VOLTMETER


Since Galvanometer is a very sensitive instrument, therefore it can not measure high potential     difference. In order to convert a Galvanometer into voltmeter, a very high resistance known as "series     resistance" is connected in series with the galvanometer.


VALUE OF SERIES RESISTANCE























 Let resistance of galvanometer = Rg and resistance R(high) is connected in series to it. Then     combined resistance = (R+ Rx).


    If potential between the points to be measured = V and if galvanometer gives full-scale deflection,     when current "Ig" passes through it. Then,
 

V = Ig (Rg + Rx
V = IgR+ IgRx 
V – IgR= IgRx 
Rx = (V – IgRg)/Ig


    Thus Rx can be found.

WHAT IS AN AMPERE’S LAW...............................................?
 
 
Dear Ramarao, The Ampere’s law states that the line integral of magnetic field in the direction of the path is equals to mue not times the current intersepted by the area.

The line integral of magnetic field around a closed path is equal to the u 0 times the net current flowing through the area bounded by the closed path

Please explain this question. What is the relation between V , I and R when this type of a problem occurs ?
 
 
moreover if you are studying about ohm law then relation between v, i ,r is as follows V = I x R . these type of problem occurs when you are given values of two parameters and you have to...

A body covered a distance of L m along a curved path of a quarter circle.The ratio of distance to displacement will be??
 
 
total distance travelled=L for displacement (pi)r/2= L so r = 2L/pi dispacement=shortest distance between initial and final points=r=2 L/pi therefore ratio=pi/2

How the spherometer is used in our daily life? give examples.
 
 
measure the thickness of glass and measure the radius of curvature of convex lens hence in this way we can use the spherometer in our daily life.
