The resistances of the four arms P, Q, Rand Sin a Wheatstone's bridge are 10 ohm, 30 ohm, 30 ohm and 90 ohm, respectively. The e.m.f. and internal resistance of the cell are 7 volt and 5 ohm respectively. 1f the galvanometer resistance is 50 ohm, the current drawn from the cell will be
The situation is as shown in the figure.
For a balanced Wheatstone's bridge
It is a balanced Wheatstone's bridge. Hence no current flows in the galvanometer arm. Hence, resistance 50 Q becomes ineffective.
The equivalent resistance of the circuit is
Current drawn from the cell is
