Have my take home mid term...and I have one question that is eluding me totally!! On a multimeter which one of it's scales is non-linear?
A. Ohm's
B. AC amps
C. DC amps
E. AC volts

At first I said AC volts because of true rms...but then as I read on Ohm's began to come up in my reading as non-linear???

Any input you have would be greatly appreciated!

thx

Bob

The correct answer is A Ohms if you are using an analog meter, one with a scale and pointer needle.

Just look at the values on the scale. They are not equally spaced for equivalent changes in resistance.

4. ## Mid Term Question

It means your about 6 months pregnant.

5. Your right spotts 9 divded by 2 is 6.

6. It's that new math they teach in Colorado

7. I work on 750 thousand dollar refrigeration systems, responsible for untold thousand of dollars worth of perishable product on any one service call. I bet I got more time troubleshooting sophisticated software and hardware problems, and making the repairs to those things than I ever got actually doing the bull work such as welding, lifiting, change outs of compressors ect.

I do okay with it after 12 years. I make a living. I drive a nice veicle, have a home, make better money than many college educated 30 somethings these days.

Never in my life have I had to know that. Or wanted to.

No wonder these kids aint learning how to be a technician.

Ok, anyone want to tell us why this is so?

It's worth an extra 10 points on your test!

The first 3 months is the I didn't even know I was pregnant term.
The next 3 months works up to mid term at 6 months.
Then comes the "Youd better cut down on the beer honey, thats a pretty big belly" term.
