Would you like to make it the primary and merge this question into it?

# How is The range of an voltmeter is increased?

The easiest way is to put a high resistance in series with the meter. You must know the input resistance of the meter. This is specified in the owner manual. Some meters ar

# What is a multi range voltmeter?

Multi-range ammeter using universal shunt

Cross the beams.

# How is the voltmeter connected to obtain a reading?

If you are talking about house wire, touch the ends of the black and white wires. The black and ground wires will work the same.

# Why the range of voltmeter extension when use series resistance?

If you use a series resistance equal to the voltmeter resistance, then an external voltage is split equally between the voltmeter and the resistance since the same current flo

# What causes an error in reading a voltmeter?

It could be when the positive wire is plugged in the negative slot and the negative wire is plugged in the positive slot. This can make the readings negative.

# How do you make expanded range voltmeter?

There are simple, and more complex (and more accurate) circuits for this. One nice pair I've seen was at HomePower.com magazine, in their very early issues. To check the state

# How do you extend the range of an ac voltmeter?

Through the use of a 'multiplier', i.e. a carefully-calibrated resistor connected in series with (in the case of an analogue instrument) the instrument's operating coil.

# When a voltmeter is connected to a resistor what will it read?

If you place an OHM meter across a resistor, it will read resistance. An OHM meter set to read voltage will read any voltage present. So, if you pick up a resistor, connec

2 volts

# What do you mean by range of voltmeter?

  It is the maximum voltage to which it has been calibrated, but this may be set out in separate ranges selected by a switch on the front panel.

# A multirange voltmeter which scale is numbered from 0 through to 250 the pointer falls mid range on the scale interpret the reading on the meter?

With the pointer mid range on the scale, the reading of the  multi-range voltmeter would be 125 volts. With the pointer mid range on the scale, the reading of the  multi-ran
