The Edison Tech Center is proud to announce the publishing of our main video of this project: the Unit I video on ammeters and voltmeters.
This nine minute video covers the history of meters from 1800 until today. We talk about the need for meters, then the development of Galvanometers and later the moving coil galvanometer. We use simple demonstrations with compasses to illustrate how the meters work.
This video is designed as the introduction to the subject of amp and voltmeters and is targeted at ages 13 and older. Our other outtakes videos go into a bit more detail on certain types of meters and their functions.
