What is Wheatstone Bridge ?

Asked by 11th June 2008, 5:06 PM
Answered by Expert
Answer:

The Wheatstone bridge is an electrical bridge circuit used to measure resistance. It consists of a common source of electrical current (such as a battery) and a galvanometer that connects two parallel branches, conta ining four resistors, three of which are known. One parallel branch contains one known resistance and an unknown (R4 in the above example); the other parallel branch contains resistors of known resistances. In order to determine the resistance of the unknown resistor, the resistances of the other three are adjusted and balanced until the current passing through the galvanometer decreases to zero.

 It is commonly known that the strain gauge transforms strain applied to it into a proportional change of resistance
