Really not trying to be cruel or snide but if you can't remember that very simple thing, you should not be working on electrical equipment.AC = house = V~
DC = car = V--
I only use my MM 2x a year, so it's not a habit.
How did you memorize this?
Any clever tricks/mnemonics?
To be honest I think the symbols are representative of what you're measuring as Dave632 mentioned.How did you memorize this?
AC is alternating current, the voltage moves up and down = ~
DC is direct current, the voltage does not fluctuate = ---
Right! Or which pedal in a car is the accelerator and which is the brake....Asking an electrician is kinda like asking someone who drives a car what a stop sign looks like...
That is perfect, and exactly what I was looking for. Thank you!!!Just remember AC - Atlantic City, lots of houses, it's on the wavy ocean ~ ~ ~ ~ ~~~~~~
