How does the balancing length of a potentiometer change on increasing the resistance offered by the rheostat that is connected in series with the primary cell. *

Balance length l1 is determined by the following equation using the principle of Wheatstone bridge
Where R is unknown resistance , S is known resistance and Rcm is resistance of ptentiometer per cm .
We see from above expression, while finding the balancing length, resistance per unit length of potentiometer
is cancelled between numerator and denominator.
Hence resistance of potentiometer wire will not affect the balancing length.

- the instrument based on null deflection method is
- 1 kilo watt = ?
- WHY CURRENT OF 220V IS HARMFUL ?
- Why can we not use rubber to make electric wires?
- Why do we prefer a potentiometer of longer length for getting the accurate readings?
- What do you mean by sensitivity of potentiometer? How can we increase the sensitivity of potentiometer?
- A potentiometer wire is 5 m long and a potential difference of 6 V is maintained between its ends. Find the emf of a cell which balances against a length of 180 cm of the potentiometer wire.
- The potential gradient along the length of uniform wire is 20 Vm-1. The length of wire is 1m. What is the potential difference across two points on the wire separated by distance 40 cm?
