Question 257 of 404

In a potentiometer experiment, the galvanometer shows no deflection when a cell is connected across 60 cm of the potentiometer wire. If the cell is shunted by a resistance of 6 Ω, the balance is obtained across 50 cm of the wire. The internal resistance of the cell is 

(1) 0.5 Ω

(2) 0.6 Ω

(3) 1.2 Ω

(4) 1.5 Ω
