Multimeter Tutorial, Part 2: Resistance!

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 [email protected]


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. Thank you so much for posting all of these, I am a senior in high school considering either EE or a double major in EE with Computer Science, and these really help me get a good background into the field. You rock 😉
