In the circuit the galvanometer $G$ shows zero deflection. If the batteries A and B have negligible internal resistance, the value of the resistor $R$ will be


$\begin {array} {1 1} (A)\;200\Omega & \quad (B)\;100\Omega \\ (C)\;500\Omega & \quad (D)\;1000\Omega \end {array}$


1 Answer

The potential drop across the resistanceR is 2V.
Now,  no current flows through the galvanometer .and if $V_1$ is the potential drop across the resistor R and V is the total potentialthen
$ \large\frac{V R}{500+R}$ $ = V_1$
$ \large\frac{12R}{500+R}$ $ = 2$
Ans : (B)
