## Total Current in Wheatstone Bridge Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Current (total) Op = (Voltage (Thevenin))/(Resistance (Thevenin)+Galvanometer Resistance)
Iop = (Eth)/(Rth+Rg)
This formula uses 4 Variables
Variables Used
Current (total) Op - (Measured in Ampere) - Current (total) Op is the total amount of current flowing through the circuit with the load.
Voltage (Thevenin) - (Measured in Volt) - Voltage (Thevenin) is the total effective voltage in the Thevenin equivalent circuit of the unbalanced Wheatstone bridge.
Resistance (Thevenin) - (Measured in Ohm) - Resistance (Thevenin) is the total Thevenin resistance for an unbalanced Wheatstone bridge.
Galvanometer Resistance - (Measured in Ohm) - Galvanometer Resistance is the value of internal resistance of the galvanometer connected across arm BD (ABCD is labelled clockwise, with A being labelled at the top).
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Voltage (Thevenin): 5.35 Volt --> 5.35 Volt No Conversion Required
Resistance (Thevenin): 40 Ohm --> 40 Ohm No Conversion Required
Galvanometer Resistance: 12.4 Ohm --> 12.4 Ohm No Conversion Required
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
Iop = (Eth)/(Rth+Rg) --> (5.35)/(40+12.4)
Evaluating ... ...
