How do you connect an ammeter? 4) What is the value of uncertainty for a measurement taken with the multimeter? 5) What is the purpose of connecting a charged object to “ground”? Calculations 6) The color bands of a given resistor are: blue, brown, orange, and gold. Determine the resistance using Table 2.1 in your manual....
