(a) Interpretation: The internal resistance of the meter if the relative error in the measurement is to be less than − 1 % is to be stated. Concept introduction: Internal resistance is the property of the material by virtue of which the object is able to hinder or obstruct the flow of the electrons that pass through the conductor.When current is delivered by any power source, the voltage available at the output of the system is always lower than that of the voltage at no-load conditions. This reduction in the voltage at the output is caused by the internal resistance.

Chapter 2, Problem 2.4QAP
Interpretation Introduction

(a)

Interpretation:

The internal resistance of the meter if the relative error in the measurement is to be less than 1% is to be stated.

Concept introduction:

Internal resistance is the property of the material by virtue of which the object is able to hinder or obstruct the flow of the electrons that pass through the conductor.When current is delivered by any power source, the voltage available at the output of the system is always lower than that of the voltage at no-load conditions. This reduction in the voltage at the output is caused by the internal resistance.

Interpretation Introduction

(b)

Interpretation:

The internal resistance of the meter if the relative error in the measurement is to be less than 0.10% is to be stated.

Concept introduction:

Internal resistance is the property of the material by virtue of which the object is able to hinder or obstruct the flow of the electrons that pass through the conductor. When current is delivered by any power source, the voltage available at the output of the system is always lower than that of the voltage at no-load conditions. This reduction in the voltage at the output is caused by the internal resistance.
