Measuring Voltage


Learn to measure voltage using expEYES and get some idea about the concept of Electrical Ground. A dry-cell and two wires are required.




Voltages measured value is +1.5 volts and it becomes -1.5 after reversing the connections.

We are measuring the potential difference between two points. One of them can be treated as at zero volts, or Ground potential. The voltage measuring points of expEYES measure the voltage with respect to the terminals marked GND. We have connected the negative terminal of the cell to Ground. The positive terminal is at +1.5 volts with respect to the negative terminal. Will it show correct voltage if GND is not connected ?
