How to Create a Simple Circuit with Ammeter and Voltmeter

How to Create a Simple Circuit with Ammeter and Voltmeter


Introduce learners to basic circuits with this user-friendly, hands-on kit. In this video, John demonstrates how to create a simple series and parallel circuit using the Lasec® Education circuit board kit. Learn how to measure current using an ammeter and how to set up a voltmeter to measure the electrical potential difference over a component of the circuit.
