Use tap water, not distilled or bottled water. 0 0 30 60 Elapsed time in seconds 90 B Figure 2-8 A t A, an arrangement for measuring the resistance of tap water. At B, resistance values as I measured them over a time span of 90 seconds. Switch your ohmmeter to measure resistance in a range from 0 to several kilohms. Find a clock or watch with a second hand, or a digital clock or watch that displays seconds as they pass. When the second hand reaches the “top of the minute” or the digital seconds display indicates “00,” plug the positive meter probe jack into its receptacle.
In general, the capacitance varies in direct proportion to the mutual surface area of the conducting plates or sheets, but inversely according to the amount of separation between the conducting sheets. • If you maintain constant spacing between the sheets and increase their mutual area, the capacitance goes up. • If you maintain constant spacing between the sheets and decrease their mutual area, the capacitance goes down. • If you maintain constant mutual area and move the sheets closer together, the capacitance goes up.
Check the Components As a lifelong electronics nerd, I recommend that you test every component before you put it to work in a circuit or system. If you check a component in isolation and find it bad, toss it aside and replace it. If you let a defective component become part of a circuit, it can create problems that you might find impossible to track down without taking the whole circuit apart. 585 V. When I tested the resistors with my digital ohmmeter in the previous experiment, I observed 326 ohms, 981 ohms, and 1467 ohms.
