  1. A Wheatstone bridge is an electrical circuit used to measure an unknown electrical resistance by balancing two legs of a bridge circuit, one leg of which includes the unknown component. The primary benefit of the circuit is its ability to provide extremely accurate measurements (in contrast with something like a simple voltage divider ). [1]

  2. The Wheatstone bridge is the electrical equivalent of two parallel voltage divider circuits. R1 and R2 compose one voltage divider circuit, and R4 and R3 compose the second voltage divider circuit. The output of a Wheatstone bridge is measured between the middle nodes of the two voltage dividers.

  3. Wheatstone bridge, also known as the resistance bridge, calculates the unknown resistance by balancing two legs of the bridge circuit. One leg includes the component of unknown resistance. Samuel Hunter Christie invented the Wheatstone bridge in 1833, which Sir Charles Wheatstone later popularised in 1843.

  4. Oct 15, 2013 · The Wheatstone Bridge diamond shaped circuit who’s concept was developed by Charles Wheatstone can be used to accurately measure unknown resistance values, or as a means of calibrating measuring instruments, voltmeters, ammeters, etc, by the use of a variable resistance and a simple mathematical formula.

  5. Sir Charles Wheatstone / ˈ w iː t s t ə n / FRS FRSE DCL LLD (6 February 1802 – 19 October 1875), was an English scientist and inventor of many scientific breakthroughs of the Victorian era, including the English concertina, the stereoscope (a device for displaying three-dimensional images), and the Playfair cipher (an encryption technique).

  6. Apr 27, 2021 · A Wheatstone bridge consists of four resistors (R 1, R 2, R 3 and R 4) that are connected in the shape of a diamond with the DC supply source connected across the top and bottom points (C and D in the circuit) of the diamond and the output is taken across the other two ends (A and B in the circuit).

  7. The circuit known as a Wheatstone bridge is most commonly used to determine the value of an unknown resistance to an electrical current. Although first described by British mathematician and scientist Samuel Hunter Christie in 1833, the circuit came to bear the name of Sir Charles Wheatstone, the English physicist who popularized it in the 1840s.
