Hire an electrician. Meter feeds are usually unfused. Any mistakes will cause a nasty fire, and draw the ire of the power company, the fire department, and your local house inspectors. You do not want to make a mistake on a 220V unfused line.

Nutral wire can be measured by using clamp meter, if there is a current passing through the wire, we got a reading in the clamp meter i.e. 2A. If we clamp the earth wire by the clamp meter the reading will be zero.

If you have a copper wire coming out it would be a"ground." This wire is there in case there is crossed wires inside the meter. It allows the electricity to seek the shortest route to the ground through the wire instead of through something dangerous or distructive.

A digital clamp meter is a meter that works from clamping over the wires. YOu dont actually have to cut or bare the wire

To measure current in a circuit. The meter needs to be inserted in series with the source or a clamp on meter has to be used on a single wire.

An inline volt meter is designed to have the voltage pass through it. The wire has to be cut or otherwise disconnected, and the meter installed between the disconnected ends of the wiring.

Use a clamp on meter (amps), or use a meter connected in series with the phase wire (note: this will require the phase wire to be disconnected)

You do not use a ground wire in the connection from the meter base to the distribution panel. A bonding wire may be required if the service is using PVC conduit.

240 watts to 120 volts? Or 240v to 120v? What kind of meter? As in an electrical test meter?

It is not practical to do what you are asking with a three-wire system.

All you have to do is turn on the car into ignition area and grab a voltage meter. Find positive first, to do this, find a good ground spot on your vehicle, such as a screw or metal, than with the red meter wire, go around til you find one that makes the volt meter go up... that is your power wire. Now, go from that wire, and check for your ground wire. Hold the positive wire onto the positive spot on your vehicle, and use the black wire to check until the meter goes up, that is your ground. Now you are done.

It's not necessary to use 1 m of wire. Any length can be used.

we in New York city must go to a specialized meter shop best choice for your car and meter safety don't burm the meter harnes or you'll be sory . do it profesionly METER SHOP.

With an "Ohmmeter" or DVOM (digital volt-ohm meter).

57.2 grams = 0.0572 kilogram(1,400 kilograms) / (0.0572 kilogram per meter) = 24,475.5 meters (rounded)

Using the WIRE SIZE CALCULATOR on the related link, I get #10 copper wire as a conservative estimate.

A multimeter is used to test an electrical current. The meter is turned to "zero" to begin. The black wire is on a piece of metal to ground it. The red wire then is used to touch the wire in question. If the meter needle moves, there is a current and the meter will show how much current in volts. Multimeters bought in hardware stores should not be used to check current of larger wires.

a DC clamp meter works on the principals of what is called "Hall Effect." The meter creates a magnetic field, and the DC voltage passing through the wire interacts to crate a meter reading.
