Homework Help: Derive Wheatstone Bridge's equation

  1. Jul 4, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    how to derive this equation?



    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution

    I try derive it that to cut out high degree part such as delta_R1*delta_R2
    because my teacher told that is very small and near to zero. but I can't made it to that given form. And i think Resistance that have change must be equal like as fraction R1*R3=R2*R4 so (R1+delta_R1)(R2+delta_R2)=(R3+delta_R3)(R4+delta_R4)

    Now, I made the last expression to

    delta_Vo = [deltaR1/R1-deltaR2/R2+deltaR3/R3-deltaR4/R4]/[2*(1+deltaR3/R3+deltaR4/R4)*(1+(deltaR1+R1)/(deltaR2+R2))]Vs

    this is my first time for this forum and my english is not good. so if i do something wrong or someone can't understand me i'm very apologize.

    I'd appreciate if someone can help me or tell me if i do wrong way.

    Thanks alot
