Question regarding ammeters & galvanometers

  1. Jul 17, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    The question I'm having trouble with is: An ammeter has a sensitivity of 10000 Ohm/V. What current passing through the galvanometer produces full-scale deflection?

    2. Relevant equations

    No idea! Only equation somewhat relevant I've seen is (Ir)(Rsh) = (Ig)r

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I think I'm missing information. How can I figure this out with just the 10000 Ohm/V provided? Don't I need more to work with?
