Question

# An ac ammeter is used to measure current in a circuit. When a given direct current passes through the circuit, the ac ammeter reads $$3\space A$$. When another alternating current passes through the circuit, the ac ammeter reads $$4\space A$$. Then find the reading of this ammeter (in A), if dc and ac flow through the circuit simultaneously.

Solution

## Here, $$I=\sqrt{I_{dc}^2+I_{ac}^2}=\sqrt{3^2+4^2}=5 A$$Thus ammeter reading is $$5 A$$PhysicsNCERTStandard XII
