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.

When is the Wheatstone bridge most sensitive...or when is the meter bridge most sensitive
 
 
The Wheatstone bridge is said to be the most sensitive when all the four resistances in the arm of Wheatstone bridge are equal to one another

The wheatstone bridge is said to be more sensitive when its voltmeter will be showing 0 deflection. that means it will be in balanced condition. the condition needs to be fulfilled is...

In the circuit shown in figure the switch is closed at t=0.the current I^3,as soon as switch is closed is ???Plzz give full solution steps
 
 
here we use some terminology... t=0 - means the time just before the switch is closed/opend depending on the previous position. t=0 + means the time just after the switch is closed/opend...

At time=0 when capacitor has no charge on it,it behaves as an ordinary conductor. so the circuit reduces to a mere bunch of resistors and a battery. now net current in the circuit at t=0 is ...
