Test: Measurement of Resistance to Electrical & Electronics Measurements - Question 1

In order to reduce skin effect in resistance standards when they are used on high frequency a.c.

Detailed Solution for Test: Measurement of Resistance to Electrical & Electronics Measurements - Question 1
  • To reduce the error in standard resistance due to stray inductance, the adjacent wires should carry current in opposite direction so as to reduce the resultant magnetic field.
  • To reduce the error due to contact (lead) resistance, a four terminal construction is used.
  • To reduce the skin effect when used at high frequency a.c., small diameter wires are used.

Test: Measurement of Resistance to Electrical & Electronics Measurements - Question 10

Consider the following statements about the bridge measurement:
1. The measurement accuracy is directly related to the accuracy of the bridge component as well as that of the null indicator used.
2. The basic dc bridge used for accurate measurement of resistance is called Wheatstone’s bridge.
3. When the bridge is in balanced condition, current flows through the galvanometer, causing a deflection of its pointer.
4. A more sensitive galvanometer deflects by a greater amount for the same current.
5. The sensitivity of the bridge measurement can only be expressed in mm/μA.
Which of these statements is/are correct?

Detailed Solution for Test: Measurement of Resistance to Electrical & Electronics Measurements - Question 10
  • The measurement accuracy is directly related to the accuracy of the bridge component and not to that of the null indicator used.
  • When the bridge is in balanced condition, no current flows through the galvanometer.
  • The sensitivity of the bridge measurement can be expressed in mm/μA or degree/mA or radians/mA.
