Measurement of d.c. Values

  • A. Cockle
Chapter
Part of the Macmillan Engineering Evaluations book series (MECS)

Abstract

During the evaluation of electronic components where the d.c. current, voltage, resistance and watts are required to be measured, it is usually sufficient to pay attention only to voltage and resistance, the other parameters can then be derived.
