## How does ammeter and voltmeter measure resistance?

Table of Contents

Ammeter – Voltmeter Methods The magnitude of resistance can be measured by different methods. One method is to measure the voltage drop V across a resistance n a circuit with a voltmeter and the current I through the resistance with an ammeter. Then using Ohm’s Law, R = V/I.

**What are the methods of measuring resistance?**

Resistance is measured using an instrument such as an analog multimeter or digital multimeter. Both types of instrument can measure not only resistance, but also current, voltage, and other parameters, so they can be used in a variety of situations.

**How do you measure the resistance of an ammeter?**

One way to measure the internal resistance of an ammeter is the circuit below. The decade box R2 is set to zero, and R1 is chosen for an approximate full scale reading for the ammeter. R2 is then adjusted to halve this reading, so its resistance equals that of the ammeter.

### Which of the following method will suitable for measurement of resistance of ammeter?

Ammeter Voltmeter Method: Connecting voltmeter across the load is suitable for low resistance measurements. Kelvin’s Double Bridge Method: Kelvin’s Double Bridge Method is a modification of the Wheatsone bridge method. R is the unknown resistance and S is the standard resistance.

**What is ammeter voltmeter method?**

The ammeter-voltmeter method is a general method for measuring electrical resistances that is widely used in the introductory physics laboratory, mostly for pedagogical reasons. Simultaneous readings of current (I) and voltage (V) allow the calculation of electrical resistance (R) using Ohm’s law: R = V/I.

**How do you measure resistance in a circuit?**

To measure resistance:

- Turn power to circuit OFF.
- Turn digital multimeter dial to resistance, or ohms, which often shares a spot on the dial with one or more other test/measurement modes (continuity, capacitance or diode; see illustration below).
- First insert the black test lead into the COM jack.

## What is voltmeter ammeter method?

**When a voltmeter-ammeter method is applied for the measurement of resistance the voltmeter reads a value of 8.28 V?**

Question: 1- When a voltmeter-ammeter method is applied for the measurement of resistance, the voltmeter reads a value of 8.28 V and the ammeter reading is 4.14 mA. Then the value of the resistance will be 2000 k 2.

**What do you mean by three ammeter method?**

One ammeter is used to measure total current of the circuit, the second one measures current going through the non- inductive resistance and the third ammeter measures the current of the load branch.

### What is resistance measurement?

Resistance is a measure of the opposition to current flow in an electrical circuit. Resistance is measured in ohms, symbolized by the Greek letter omega (Ω). Ohms are named after Georg Simon Ohm (1784-1854), a German physicist who studied the relationship between voltage, current and resistance.
