Question from a Student: How does an Ohm meter Connect to a circuit

An Ohm meter should not be connected to a live circuit. You will damage the meter and may also damage the circuit components. This will depend up the circuit configuration and where you place your meter leads in the circuit you are trying to test. When you measure resistance ( that is what an Ohm meter is used for) the component should be out of the circuit and have no Voltage connected to it to get a correct Resistance measurement.
