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?

already exists.

Would you like to merge this question into it?

already exists as an alternate of this question.

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

exists and is an alternate of .

Current does not come from a wall outlet unless the wall outlet is part of a complete circuit.
Thanks for the feedback!

What meter is used to measure amperes?

An ammeter measures Amperes.

How many wall outlets can you have in a circuit using a 15A breaker?

One View:In USA: As many as you want. There's no magic number. You have 15A to play with, so you can divide that up however you wish. It all depends on what you intend to plug

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 DVM voltage range do you use to measure house current voltage 110Vor 120V Why?

You must set the range so that the maximum value is greater than the conventional voltage levels in your house. Like, in the United States, the common voltage level is 120 vol

What type of current is used in batteries and which is used in household outlets?

In batteries Direct current is used (DC). This is because Batteries do not last very long and therefore are made to have certain voltage that can be used in most electronics.

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

What are meters used to measure?

  A meter is a measure of LENGTH - a meter being just over three US feet. It is, of course, a unit of the METRIC system. There are 100 CENTI-meters in a meter, and 1000 m

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

What do you use to measure meters?

  Use a yardstick or one of those plastic roll up measuring things that has a reel thing on it, and yes, I know I sounded stupid, but I couldn't think of the name!   A
