Determine the required value of the shunt resistance if the maximum value of the current I is 200 A. The meter can read a maximum of 1 mA and has a resistance of 0.1 Ω.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

My answer is;

Rsh:

0.1*(0.1x10^-3)/200-(0.1x10^_3)

=0.1/(200/0.1x10^-3)-1

=1/19999990

=0.0000005 ohms

Is this correct or do I need to return to the drawing board?
