      5 ohms

    • C.

      50 ohms

    • D.

      500 ohms

    Correct Answer
    B. 5 ohms
    Explanation
    The maximum circuit resistance within a thermocouple circuit is 5 ohms. This is because a thermocouple generates a voltage based on the temperature difference between its two junctions. To accurately measure this voltage, the circuit resistance should be as low as possible to minimize any voltage drops across the circuit. A higher circuit resistance would result in a larger voltage drop, leading to inaccurate temperature measurements. Therefore, a maximum circuit resistance of 5 ohms is recommended for thermocouple circuits.
