What does an oscilloscope do?
A) It measures voltage
A digital multimeter is an effective tool for detecting distortion in a signal.
Most digital multimeters are useful for measuring ac voltage at low frequencies.
Because an oscilloscope gives a visual representation of a voltage and a digital multimeter does not, an oscilloscope is more effective at detecting distortion.
You want to measure a low-frequency current. What should you use?
A) Digital multimeter
A) Digital multimeter
An oscilloscope is better at producing high-frequency voltages than a digital multimeter.
When a signal changes its shape due to some problem, we call it
An oscilloscope can measure only voltage.
A digital multimeter can only measure voltage, but an oscilloscope can both measure and produce voltages.
To determine the voltage of a wave, you first must determine how many divisions tall the wave is. Then, you must multiply the number of divisions by
C) the vertical sensitivity

Which of the following is spelled correctly?
When determining the voltage of a wave on the oscilloscope, you should multiply the vertical sensitivity setting by
D) the height of the wave in divisions
When measuring the ac voltage at a wall outlet, the frequency is too high to be able to accurately take a voltage reading with a digital multimeter.
On an oscilloscope, voltage is measured on the x-axis.
On an oscilloscope, the vertical sensitivity knob is used to set
A) The number of volts each division represents
If two waves appear on an oscilloscope at the same time, then they both have the same vertical sensitivity setting.
An oscilloscope is incapable of changing the value of a voltage.
