Answer to Question 8

Back

On this multimeter, there is a 100 range.  What is the maximum resistance that can be read from the scale?  Comment on the accuracy and precision of the reading of a resistor of 750 kW, assuming the instrument is accurately calibrated.

Maximum resistance = 10 000 W 100 = 1 106 W

 

The reading of a 750000 W resistor would be neither accurate not precise:
