Why moving coil galvanometer cannot be used to measure current in the circuit?
Asked by menu007 | 27th Feb, 2011, 01:17: AM
Galvanometer is an electromechanical instrument which is used for the detection of electric currents through electric circuits. Being a sensitive instrument, Galvanometer can not be used for the measurement of heavy currents. However we can measure very small currents by using galvanometer but the primary purpose of galvanometer is the detection of electric current not the measurement of current.
Hope this helps.
