FemEng lab Episode 2: The multimeterFollow article
Hi everyone! Welcome to the second video in the FemEng Lab Series, where Natalia will introduce the multimeter and the basics of how to use it.
You probably would have used a hand-held digital multimeter at some point in school to measure voltage, current, or resistance. The digital multimeter used in this video is the same tool, except it is designed to be more suitable for laboratories or education. You are likely to use this multimeter in electronic labs, where measuring these values will help you calculate many more values asked of you in the lab sheet given to you.
So as you can imagine, it is quite a useful tool to be able to use! We will demonstrate how to use the multimeter using the breadboard from the previous video.
