I am a software developer trying to understand how computers work at a lower level.
I have purchased a digital MultiMeter. I realise that MultiMeters enable you to measure voltages, ohms, amps etc. I also understand that you can select a range e.g. 20k ohms by turning the knob. If I select 20k ohms for example, then does this mean that the MultiMeter can then be used to measure up to 20k ohms of resistance? and if I select 20V of direct current then does this mean that the MultiMeter can be used to measure up to 20V of direct current?
I have a book which comprehensively talks about MultiMeters but does not confirm this question I have.
I realise it is a basic question, but then I am new to this field (I hold a GCSE in Electronics).
