K6-33: WHEATSTONE BRIDGE

Additional Info

  • ID Code: K6-33
  • Purpose: Demonstrate operation of a Wheatstone bridge.
  • Description: A Wheatstone bridge is connected as in the circuit below using two (approximately) 400 ohm resistors, a 0-90 ohm variable resistor and a 60 watt light bulb (16.7 ohms cold) with a 6 volt battery and a 0-5 mA ammeter (large lecture meter). The unknown resistance Rx (the light bulb) is: Rx = Rs (R2/R1), where Rs is the resistance of the active part of the variable resistor (equal to the fraction of its length used multiplied by 90 ohms).
