Lecture 12 Lecture 12 - 2 Ammeter and Voltmeter Ammeter : an instrument used to measure currents • It must be connected in series. • The internal resistance of an ammeter must be kept as small as possible. Voltmeter : an instrument used to measure potential differences • It must be connected in parallel. • The internal resistance of a voltmeter must be made as large as possible.

    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.
