DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION OF A METRE BRIDGE

# This work deals with metre Bridge which is one of the fundamental instrument in most physics laboratories.  Metre Bridge is a topic under electricity, is an instrument made up of wooden board metre rule, wire, usually constantan, and metal strips (standard resistor, unknown resistor, galvanometer, battery, sliding contact, and keys are included when the metre bridge is in use.

INTRODUCTION

1.1     BACKGROUND HISTORY OF WHEATSTONE BRIDGE

The study of electricity is an important aspect of physics because electricity plays a key role in the modern world.  The working of most modern appliances such as radio, television, computers and calculators, refrigerator, air conditioners, sound systems and electric fan is possible as a result of electricity.

There are three basic quantities, which must be clearly understood before we can proceed with the subject of electricity.  There are electric current, potential difference and electric resistance.  One needs to have the knowledge of circuit board and work with a variety of circuit including voltage dividers, the wheatstone bridge.

Sir Charles Wheatstone (1802 – 1873) was a British Scientist and inventor of telegraph systems.  He began as a musical instrument maker in London, but his scientific was to select the best result, which resulted in an outstanding paper on acoustic he presented to the Royal Society in (1833 –
