Hello everyone, so far i've missed every single problem, this book has a section on ammeters and voltameters that is like 1 paragraph long and just says, the ammeter measures current, the voltameter measures Potential difference. And this problem asks:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

n Fig. 28-40, the ammeter and voltmeter resistances are 2.00 and 268 , respectively. Take E= 12.0 V for the ideal battery and R0 = 119 .

Here is my work: http://img201.imageshack.us/img201/2220/pink8iw.jpg [Broken]

Figure 28-40a Figure 28-40b

Here is the first figure, 28-40a: http://www.webassign.net/hrw/28-40a.gif

(a) If R = 93.0 what will the meters read for the two different connections (Figs. 28-40a and b)?
