    Problem measuring PH (it oscilates) for gastric juice

    I bought a PH meter with glass electrode. I calibrated it using a buffer solution following the instructions. When I measure the PH of tap water, vinegar, or other simple liquids it initially keeps changing but eventually it stabilizes at the correct value. But I tried to measure gastric juice...

    Electrical meter and efficiency question

    Q1. I know a DMM will anticipate a sineusoidal supply, thus there can be problems with spiky supplies. Even if you have a true RMS meter, it it's a spikey supply, non-sineusoidal, you still can't calculate the peak of a spiky supply? Does a DMM measure the peak, then calculate from THAT the...
