Homework Help: Physics EM

Posted by Spencer on Monday, March 10, 2008 at 7:50pm.

A battery with EMF 90.0 V has internal resistance R_b = 8.68 Omega.
What is the reading V_v of a voltmeter having total resistance R_v = 485 \Omega when it is placed across the terminals of the battery?
Express your answer with three significant figures.
V_v =88.4V
This is the value I found is correct. I dont see how to solve this next question.

What is the maximum value that the ratio R_b/R_v may have if the percent error in the reading of the EMF of a battery is not to exceed 3.00 %?
