We usually assume that ammeters have negligible resistance and voltmeters have
infinite resistance.
The determination of ε and r is not affected by using an ammeter with non-negligible
resistance but is affected by using a voltmeter with a low resistance.
Explain why.(4)
THE MARKING SCHEME SAYS
Ammeter explanation:
If ammeter has resistance, current decreased
but doesn’t affect the determination because current through cell/r is
measured
Or doesn’t affect the determination because the voltmeter measures the
terminal p.d. for that current
OR
The resistance of the ammeter contributes to the load/circuit/total
resistance
Values of p.d. corresponding to given values of current will be
unchanged
Voltmeter explanation:
If voltmeter has smaller resistance it would draw current
measured current not current through cell/r
