Homework Help: Circuit analysis

  1. Oct 21, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    (5 marks) Obtain the current through the Galvanometer G, having a resistance of 14Ω, in
    the Wheatstone bridge shown in Fig-4

    2. Relevant equations

    i know the delta-Y transformation and applied it, i found out the R (eq) to be 32.4675ohm

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I=V/R= 0.4927 A
    someone please check the answer of problem no 4 and let me know if its right or wrong

    Doesn't look right to me.

    If you apply a Δ-Y transformation, won't you transform-away the very resistor you wish to find the current through?
