Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Lets think about this. If we are attempting to measure 25 amps, and the ammeter is full scale at 5 amps, then the shunt must accomodate the excess 20 amps. Now the voltage drop this shunt must equal the drop as when 5 amps goes through the .5 ohm meter resistance which would be .5 X 5 or 2.5 volt. What resistance would produce 2.5 volts when 20 amps is flowing through it? E=IR 2.5=20R R=2.5/20=.125 ohm or 1.8 as y2o2 posted above.
