Your Multimeter leads probes pincer clips – good for working with Boe-Bot wiring You will use the multimeter to understand and troubleshoot circuits, mostly measuring DC voltage, resistance and DC current. turn knob to what you would like to measure (push these onto probes)
Measure V in Vin will be the same as your power supply voltage. For the case below, 4 AA batteries are used resulting in approximately 6 V (5.79 V to be more exact). Vin = power supply voltage Vss = ground (negative side of battery) Switch to DC Volts

Measure Vdd Vdd will always be around 5V (it is 4.94 V here). A voltage regulator on the Board of Education reduces this voltage from Vin down to ~ 5V. The Boe-Bot operates on 5V DC. Vdd ~ 5V Vss = ground (negative side of battery)
Select Resistors Find the 470 and the 10k resistors from your Boe-Bot kit. Example: 470 resistor: 4 = yellow 7 = violet Add 1 zero to 47 to make 470, so 1 = brown Now, find the 10k resistor.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
