An open circuit has an infinate resistance?
There is no such a thing as infinite resistance but it could be a very high resistance.
Firstly turn of the power before this test... Using a resistance or continuity tester you should get the following results: Short circuit: Very low resistance (nearly 0 ohms) or the bell will ring. Open circuit: Very high resistance (Somewhere in the range of Mega ohms) or the bell will not ring. The reason for this is because and open circuit has a gap in it (which has high resistance). The short circuit has wires that…
An open circuit is a kind of electric circuit in which the path that the electrons follow cannot be completed because of an open gap that they cannot flow through. An open circuit is a circuit where the load resistance has been removed and replaced with an open, meaning there is no electrical connection between the two sides of the circuit.
