Practical activities and Equipment ideas

Multimeters When the meter is set to measure current, some of the pracs can generate sufficient current to blow the fuse. To replace the fuse, the blue case can be levered off with a flat screwdriver. It is easier to start at the top above the display. A current in excess of 200 mA could be produced when the solar cells are wired for maximum current and the resistance of the rest of the circuit is low. If such a situation is likely, then the 10A socket on the left should be used.
