In a slide wire bridge, the balance is obtained at a point 25cm from one end of wire 1m long. The resistance to be tested is connected to that end and a standard resistance of 3.6Ω is connected to the other end of the wire. Determine the value of the unknown resistance

  • A. 3.2Ω
  • B. 1.4Ω
  • C. 3.21Ω
  • D. 1.2Ω
RELATED!  What is the total resistance in the above diagram?




To properly understand and solve this problem, we need to sketch the slide wire bridge as follows:

  1. Option A is incorrect.
  2. Option B is incorrect.
  3. C is incorrect.
  4. D is the correct answer.


You may please note these/this:

  • A slide wire bridge, also known as meter bridge uses the principle of balance point for a known resistance on the 100cm meter rule to determine the value of an unknown resistance, arranging them as shown in the sketch above.
