Q. 124.0( 26 Votes )

In a potentiometer arrangement, a cell of emf 1.25 V gives a balance point at 35.0 cm length of the wire. If the cell is replaced by another cell and the balance point shifts to 63.0 cm, what is the emf of the second cell?

Answer :

Given EMF of the cell E1 = 1.25Volt

Balance point of the potentiometer l1 is given 35cm


Since the cell is replaced by another cell of EMF E2


New balance point of potentiometer l2 is 63cm


Since balance condition is given by



E2 = 1.25V × (63m/35m)


E2 = 2.25Volt.
