Discusses construction of ammeters and voltmeters and their placement in electric circuits.
Understand how the magnetic field generated by loops of current-carrying wire is used to create measuring devices like voltmeters and ammeters.
Demonstrates how to use an ammeter and a voltmeter. Highlights the importance of setting up ammeters in series with resistors and voltmeters in parallel with resistors.
Reviews ammeters, voltmeters, and problems about circuits containing them.
This is an activity for students to complete before and after reading the Ammeters and Voltmeters Concept.
