**Trying to understand things....watts/amps/voltage**

Read on as we show you how you can easily measure the amount of energy your appliances-geeky and otherwiseâ€”are sucking down. There are a variety of reasons for wanting to figure out how much energy your gadgets, gizmos, and appliances are sucking down, ranging from environmental concerns to shock over a high electric bill.... Volts, Amps and Ohms â€“ Measuring Electricity The three most basic units in electricity are voltage (V), current (I) and resistance (r). Voltage is measured in volts, current is measured in amps and resistance is measured in ohms. A neat analogy to help understand these terms is a system of plumbing pipes. The voltage is equivalent to the water pressure, the current is equivalent to the flow

**How to Measure electrical resistance with a multimeter**

Ampere or amp (symbol: A) is the unit of electrical current. The Ampere unit is named after Andre-Marie Ampere, from France. One Ampere is defined as the current that flows with electric charge of one Coulomb per second. Ampere meter or ammeter is an electrical instrument that is used to measure... Amps, volts, and watts exist in a mathematical relationship to one another, expressed as follows: Volts x amps = watts If an appliance is rated at 120 volts and 10 amps, it will use up to 1,200 watts when it is running: 120 volts x 10 amps = 1,200 watts.

**How to read amps in a multimeter Electrical Engineering**

That should give a true reading in amps. If (and only if) that value is below 200mA (shown as 0.200 or less) then you can go back to the 200m range AND move the lead to the middle socket. If (and only if) that value is below 200mA (shown as 0.200 or less) then you can go back to the 200m range AND move the lead to the middle socket.... Electrical Units of Measure The standard units of electrical measurement used for the expression of voltage, current and resistance are the Volt [ V ], Ampere [ A ] and Ohm [ Î© ] respectively.

**Electrical Units of Measure and Descriptions**

AMPS MEASUREMENT METHODS - how to actually measure amperage or current draw at a building, at an individual electrical circuit, or at an electrical appliance, device, motor, etc. Note that the measurement of current draw or amps or amount of electricity being consumed is an actual instantaneous measurement of actual electrial power use at the moment, not a measurement of the â€¦... When it comes to designing a circuit breaker panel, you must understand how the appliances "pull" current. If an appliance attached to a 120V energy source requires 1200 watts to run, it will automatically pull 10 amps of current through the line.

## How To Understand Electric Measurement Amps

### With a multimeter, measure the resistance between motor frame (body) and earth. A good motor should read less than 0.5 ohms. Any value greater 0.5 ohms indicate trouble with the motor. A good motor should read less than 0.5 ohms.

- Measuring electric motor torque requires using a formula. Look at the owner's manual of the electric motor, or electrical appliance that has an electric motor (such as a power screwdriver). Find the rating of the motor in terms of volts, amperes, and rpm.
- Indeed, sometimes an electric current does consist of positively charged atoms moving from positive to negative. Positive to negative or negative to positive, it makes no difference. Whichever best helps you to understand a circuit is the one to use.
