# Two voltmeter have the same range 0-400v . The internal impedence are 32kohm and 18kohm respectively. If they are connected in series and 500v be applied across them . What will be the reading

Dear student,

The 500V input will divide in the ratio of their resistances. Hence the voltage across the two voltmeters and hence their reading would be$\dpi{80} \dfrac{32}{32+18}400V=256V$and$\dpi{80} \dfrac{18}{32+18}400V=144V$, respectively.

Regards.
