And before that we used libraries and bookstores, subscribed to periodicals and paid attention in class, and put forth the unavoidable hard work it took to figure things out for ourselves.Back in the day us old folks used something called google instead of being lazy and just asking on a forum.
That is simply ridiculous. There are probably hundreds of questions that never get asked here because people take 10 seconds of initiative and go and serch for the anwer. The questions that get asked here are are worthy of the time of others are those that can't be easily found in a search.Then this site should be closed, because everyone will learn more if they figure it out for themselves.
Who died and left you in charge of what kinds of questions get asked here?
Nobody puts a gun to your head and forces you to “waste your time”.
Searching can be a frustrating affair, and there is no way of knowing how long a poster spent doing it before coming here. Heck…half the time a search leads the person right here. How do you think people find this place?
I want to thank "crutschow," for the answer without spoon-feeding me, and ElectricSpidey and MisterBill2 for reminding these folks to be civil. The assumption that this is a homework assignment is exactly THAT, an assumption. I am 64 year old retired man who finished college some time ago. I asked this question because I was seeking knowledge. I see that I will have to purchase an oscilloscope, so I promise that in the future, I will not have to bother you haters. P.S.: I came to this forum not to use it as an excuse for "laziness," but because I could not find an explanation on the web that was easy enough for a 5th grader to understand.
Generally, even if the meter circuitry responds to the average value (of the full-wave rectified signal), the output is designed to display the RMS of a sinewave (.707/.637 = 1.11 of the average value).Usually that tells you if it is measuring RMS or Average or both
