Question:

Choose the words that make each statement correct.

(i) To properly measure the current through a device, the {(a) ammeter; (b) voltmeter} must be connected {(c) in series with; (d) in parallel with} the device.

(ii) To properly measure the voltage across a device, the {(e) ammeter ; (f) voltmeter} must be connected {(g) in series with; (h) in parallel with} the device.

Current and voltage

The net flow of electric charge through a conductor or conductive region is called current. It is measured in amperes. The voltage is the electric pressure and measured in volts.

Answer and Explanation:

Answer :

(a) ammeter

(c) in series with

(f) voltmeter

(h) in parallel with

An ammeter is a device connected in series and used to measure electric current.

A voltmeter connected in parallel across two points whose potential difference needs to be known.
