Hello All,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm planning to do a relatively simple project.

What it consists of is a wheatstone bridge. I'm making a wheatstone bridge connection with 3 resistors and one unknwown resistor which is a pressure sensor. I know that the sensor changes from say 5,000 ohms (originally) to a maximum of 22,000 ohms.

Now, I am trying to find 3 ideal resistor combinations of the remaining in the wheatstone bridge which would give me MAXIMUM voltage variation with just a little amount of pressure on the sensor.

I'm trying to play around with different resistor value combinations going high/ low etc ... but when will I know when I have hit the ideal combination? Would appreciate any help for the same ...

Thanks!
