A potentiometer wire of length \(L\) and a resistance \(r\) are connected in series with a battery of EMF \(E_{0 }\) and resistance \(r_{1}\). An unknown EMF is balanced at a length l of the potentiometer wire. The EMF \(E\) will be given by:
1. \(\frac{L E_{0} r}{l r_{1}}\)
2. \(\frac{E_{0} r}{\left(\right. r + r_{1} \left.\right)} \cdot \frac{l}{L}\)
3. \(\frac{E_{0} l}{L}\)
4. \(\frac{L E_{0} r}{\left(\right. r + r_{1} \left.\right) l}\)

A resistance of 4 Ω and a wire of length 5 metres and resistance 5 Ω are joined in series and connected to a cell of e.m.f. 10 V and internal resistance 1 Ω. A parallel combination of two identical cells is balanced across 300 cm of the wire. The e.m.f. E of each cell is:

1. 1.5 V

2. 3.0 V

3. 0.67 V

4. 1.33 V

The metre bridge shown is in a balanced position with \(\frac{P}{Q} = \frac{l_1}{l_2}\). If we now interchange the position of the galvanometer and the cell, will the bridge work? If yes, what will be the balanced condition?

    
1. Yes, \(\frac{P}{Q}=\frac{l_1-l_2}{l_1+l_2}\)
2. No, no null point
3. Yes, \(\frac{P}{Q}= \frac{l_2}{l_1}\)
4. Yes, \(\frac{P}{Q}= \frac{l_1}{l_2}\)
