I have been working on this problem for the past two days and have not been able to figure it out.
The question is:
"The voltage at point A (Va) is to be measured with the Fluke 45. What will the meter read and what is the loading error?"
The answer is suppose to be:
Fluke will read 59.88 V and the loading error is 9.2%
This question is a part of my lab on Meter loading effects and this is the only part of the lab that i cannot complete
some quick info on the Fluke 45 DMM is that as an ammeter, the Fluke 45 represents a load resistance of 10 ohm. As a dc voltmeter, it represents a load resistance of 10 M ohm
The circuit that belongs with the question should be attached to this post.
I think the problem I am having is understanding the circuit. I am not really sure where the meter would go when trying to measure voltage on this circuit. I have attached a pdf of some other work ive done. sorry thats only the bit of work ive got scanned. Ive tried this question over and over varying the way i do it and the closest answer ive gotten to was around 57 volts
also the circuit in the drawing is what the i assumed the circuit in the question would look like am i wrong to think this?
"PDFonline.pdf" is the circuit drawing the question gives
"bit of work of done.pdf" was an example of the one of many ways i attempted to solve this
please help as soon as possible
