    I have two questions on test I am studying for.

    What would you measure across a shorted capacitor?
    I would think 0 v.

    If you measuring resistance in a circuit, and the resistance constantly goes up.
    What would cause this?
    I would think there is a capacitor in the circuit.


    Thanks for any info. Zsnow

    Both answer appear to be correct.

    You may want to expand on the answer to your second question by indicating why the increasing resistance leads you to conclude that a capacitor is present in the circuit.

    HINT: It has something to do with the way most volt-ohm meters measure resistance.
