An inductor is connected in series with an AC source, the rms output voltage of it is 260V and a hot-wire ammeter reads 2A. If the ratio of the voltage across the ammeter to the voltage across the inductor is 5/12, determine the resistance of the ammeter. (Neglect the inductor resistance).
2. Homework Equations
i=V/R (where i is the current, V is the voltage and R is the resistance).
The Attempt at a Solution
(Va is the ammeter voltage and Vl is the inductor voltage)
My result is not what in my text book, could you explain why?
