the a.c. voltmeter using full wave rectifier is achieved by using bridge rectifier consisting of four diodes, as shown in the Fig. 1.

Let 10 V r.m.s. purely sinusoidal input be applied.

Now this meter uses full wave rectifier and hence the average value of output over a cycle is same as average of the input over a cycle i.e. 9 V.

Thus, the 10 V r.m.s. voltage is equal to 9 V d.c. for full scale deflection. Thus the pointer will deflect to 90% of full scale.

The multiplier resistance can be obtained as
