A milli-ammeter requires 100mV across its terminals to give full-scale deflection with a current
of 10mA flowing through the coil.
Calculate the resistance required in series with the meter so that the combination of
meter plus resistor would give a full-scale deflection for 50 V.
(8 marks)
How could the milli-ammeter be converted to an ammeter with a full-scale deflection
5.0A and what value of resistance would be required?
(8 marks)
Sketch the circuit in each case above.
(4 marks)
a. List the relative advantages and disadvantages of lead-acid and alkaline cells.
(6 marks)
b. A battery of 50 cells connected in series is charged through a fixed resistor from a
constant 120 V supply. At the beginning of the charge, the e.m.f per cell is 1.9 V and the
charging current is 4 A. When charging is almost complete, the e.m.f. per cell has risen to
2.2 V. Each cell has an internal resistance of 0.02 Ω. Calculate the value of the external
resistor and the current at the end of the charge.
