The basics of current and voltage

HideShow resource information

Measuring current and voltage:

The current in an electric circuit is measured using an Ammeter. The Ammeter is placed in a circuit in series with the other components.

The potential difference (voltage) across a component is measured using a Voltmeter. The Voltmeter is placed in parallel with the the component.

In a series circuit:

The current…
