Makeup Quiz -- Galvanometers

[circuit] In this circuit there is a current of 360 mA through the lamp and 2.52 V across it. Given a galvanometer with 25 ohm resistance and a current for full-scale deflection of 1.0 mA, design an ammeter and voltmeter to confirm the stated circuit values.

a) Design an ammeter with 500 mA full-scale deflection.

b) Design a voltmeter with 5.0 V full-scale deflection.
