Standby systems are needed, especially for lighting when power is off. Automobiles use storage batteries for their everyday operation. Many types of instruments and portable equipment use batteries for power. MEASURING VOLTAGE, CURRENT, AND RESISTANCE Figure 1-40(c). Series-parallel voltage connection. Another important activity in the study of electronics is measurement. Measurements are made in many types of electronic circuits. The proper ways of measuring resistance, voltage, and current should be learned.

Prefixes of large units. The simple conversion scale shown in Figure 1-38 is useful when converting standard units to units of measurement with prefixes. This scale uses either powers of 10 or decimals to express the units. SCIENTIFIC NOTATION Using scientific notation greatly simplifies arithmetic operations. Any number written as a multiple of a power of 10 and a number between 1 and 10 is said to be expressed in scientific notation. 0000000001, or 4 × 10–10 Conversion of chemical energy into electrical energy is done by chemical cells.

The resistance of the potentiometer is measured in this way. Connecting to points B and C or to points B and A allows changes in resistance as the shaft is turned. The potentiometer shaft may be adjusted both clockwise and counterclockwise. This adjustment affects the measured resistance across points B and C or B and A. The resistance varies from zero to maximum and from maximum back to zero as the shaft is adjusted. How to Measure Resistance with a VOM Remember that resistance is the opposition to flow of electric current.
