What would you like to do?

# If you measure the current coming from a wall outlet in your house will it give the same reading the meter uses to compute your home energy use?

Would you like to merge this question into it?

Would you like to make it the primary and merge this question into it?

#### exists and is an alternate of .

No.
Current does not come from a wall outlet unless the wall outlet is part of a complete circuit.
Thanks for the feedback!

# If you had a multimeter and plugged it into a 120V wall outlet what electrical current would it read?

If the meter was set for "current" (amps) and the leads were connected to the current input, you hope it will read 0. -- It should blow the fuse inside. If the meter is set

# If you want to use your car's amplifier and subwoofers on your home stereo or computer how can you plug either a 300W amp or a 1200W amp to a 120V house outlet?

You can't plug a car amplifier into a 120V house outlet. You must  first convert 120V AC to 12V DC, then plug your car amplifier into  the 12V DC.    It has been state

# What is the type of electric current you are using when you plug something into a wall outlet?

Alternating Current.

# What type of current comes from the outlets in your home?

Alternating Current (AC), which means it changes from positive to negative at a frequency of 50 or 60 cycles per second.   In USA, Canada and other countries which use simi

# What kind of current comes from the wall outlet?

I know that it may be electrical current. yep it is thx i got a 96 on my test :) k.m

# Wall outlets use what kind of current?

alternating current

kilowatt-hours

# Does measuring the the wall outlet voltage give you the full load measurement?

A: measuring the wall outlet will tell the potential in volts available but not the power capability. If a load is applied then that voltage shell tell you the wall outlet cap

# A meter used to measure energy consumed is called a?

Won't it be the Wattmeter, for 1W = 1Joule/second? The domestic electricity meter is a kW/hr meter.

# Does Canada have the same outlets as the us?

Canada and the United States (along with most of the rest of North  America and some of South America) use a connector standardized by  the National Electrical Manufacturers

# Can you use an oscilloscope to measure the 110 volts AC in a home wall outlet if so how is it done safely to avoid damage to the oscilloscope?

The first thing to consider in measuring the line voltage of a home wall outlet is the oscilloscope probe voltage rating. Most high-impedance probes have a resistance of one M

# Can a business computer be used the same as home computer?

A: all computers are created equal the difference is the applications. It will be unproductive to have games in a business computer or to have limited memory

# What is the type of energy meter we used in our houses?

Probably a regular energy meter that is meant for you to use in your house.

# Would you use meters to measure the height of the haunted house?

feet is probably more accurate
In Science

# Would you use a meter or a millimeter to measure a house fly?

You measure a house fly in millimeters

# Would you use meters or kilometers to measure your house?

It depends how big your house is! Meters is normally best for us with modest size houses.

# Why is alternating current used to measure the conductivity meter instead of direct current?

Using DC the problem can be electrolytic action in the material  being tested that causes the reading to change with time. AC  prevents that happening.
