Basic Electrical Science (A.C. Bridges)

1. Maxwell-Wien bridge is used for measuring
(a) capacitance
(b) dielectric loss
(c) inductance
(d) phase angle

2. Maxwell’s L/C bridge is so called because
(a) it employs L and C in two arms
(b) ratio L/C remains constant
(c) for balance, it uses two opposite impedances in opposite arms
(d) balance is obtained when L = C

3. ........ bridge is used for measuring an unknown inductance in terms of a known capacitance and resistance.
(a) Maxwell’s L/C
(b) Hay’s
(c) Owen
(d) Anderson

4. Anderson bridge is a modification of ....... bridge.
(a) Owen
(b) Hay’s
