8. Set the meter lead and range to measure 10A DC and briefly measure the short circuit current available from the +9V supply (USE CAUTION! Make sure that the red meter lead is in the 10A jack.) Note:You should see 1.5A < I meas < 2.5A. If your current is out of this range, do not continue until see a GTA or Dave Fritz for assistance.

9. Switch the meter range switch to 10A AC and briefly measure the short circuit current available from the +9V supply.

11. Before continuing, set the meter range switch back to 10A DC.

Use your DMM to measure the current of the +9V supply that flows through the 12kΩ resistor for each DC voltage range of the multimeter.

Begin with 10A DC, then move the meter lead and range to mA DC only if the current is less than 0.1A.

Circle the range should you use for best resolution and accuracy.

Take your computer with this worksheet, the meter and Probe leads, your A&D , and the A&D board power with the parts, and the ANDY board power supply to the OpEL and Validate your Lab before the due date and time.

WARNING:

10 points will be deducted for any item (meter, probe lead, power, parts, etc.) that you must borrow from the GTA to validate.

Failure to complete the Quiz and/or worksheet submission by the deadline results in a grade penalty (1/2 credit up to 24 hr late, no credit after 24 hr late).

Late validations will receive a score of 0
