I took some measurements for a Physics lab and don't recall whether the Voltmeter I used reports the peak voltage or rms voltage. I need rms voltage to calculate the rms current. Can anyone tell me what the norm is for voltmeters: peak or rms?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

To divide by the [squ]2 or not to divide by the [squ]2, that is the question.

Thanks.
