A circuit consists of a series combination of 5.50 Omega and 5.00 Omega resistors connected across a 50.0 V battery having negligible internal resistance. You want to measure the true potential difference (that is, the potential difference without the meter present) across the 5.00 Omega resistor using a voltmeter having an internal resistance of 10.0 Omega.

a) What potential difference does the voltmeter measure across the 5.00 Omega resistor?

b) What is the true potential difference across this resistor when the meter is not present? I thought this was just 25 but it is wrong when I enter in..

c) By what percentage is the voltmeter reading in error from the true potential difference?
