A galvanometer of resistance 40 ohms requires a current of 10mA to give a full-scale deflection. A shunt is put in position to convert it to a meter reading up to 1.0A full-scale deflection. A resistance bobbin, intended to convert the galvanometer to one reading up to 1.0V full-scale deflection, is now attached to the instrument but the shunt is inadvertently left in position. By considering the potential difference across the bobbin and the meter, calculate the voltage which would produce full-scale deflection of the meter.
