Get your ohmmeters out, kids. It’s time for part 2 of how to use a multimeter, this time for all of your resistor-measuring needs.
You will Learn:
- How to measure resistors (duh)
- The difference between auto-ranging and ranged meters and what to watch out for
- How to characterize and test potentiometers and certain sensors.
I also attempt to uncover the reason why all meter ranges start with the number 2.
There’s lots of video clips, many of which are extremely boring compared to YouTube. Like check this one out of me shading an LDR
I strongly recommend adding it to your myspace!@
