```							given, resistance of potentiometer wire, R = 10 ohm length of potentiometer wire , l = 100cmemf of cell, connected in series with potentiometer wire, E = 2V.balancing length is obtained at 40cm.so, I = E/(R + r) where I is the current through potentiometer .I = 2/(10 + r) ....(1)now resistance of 40cm wire = 40/100 × 10 = 4 ohms. given, emf of the cell is balanced by a length of wire, E' = 10mV = 10^-2 voltsusing Ohm'slaw,V = IR10^-2 = I × 4 ohms or, I = 2.5 × 10^-3 A now putting the value of I in equation (1), 2.5 × 10^-3 = 2/(10 + r) 10 + r = 2/(2.5 × 10^-3) = 2000/2.5 = 800or, r = 790 ohms hence, answer is 790ohms.
