Chapter 21, Problem 61PE
Textbook Problem

(a) What is the unknown emfx in a potentiometer that balances when Rxis 10.0 O, and balances when Rsis 15.0Ωfor a standard 3.000-V emf? (b) The same emfx is placed in the same potentiometer, which now balances when Rsis 15.0Ωfor a standard emf of 3.100 V. At what resistance Rxwill the potentiometer balance?
