why is the voltmeter connected in parallel?
Asked by snigdhaa138_461 | 1st Sep, 2010, 02:34: AM
Because the galvanometer coil inside the voltmeter has resistance which can change the current drawn in the circuit from the batteries or sources. Hence we connect it in parallel and using very high resistance in voltmeter draw only a negligible amount of current.
