This question is for a project I'm doing for my circuits class. I'm trying to diagnose a problem. Basically I got this coil. I measured the resistance of the coil by connecting the ends of my multimeter to the uncoated ends of the coil. I got a resistance value. However, when I tried checking for continuity of the coil from the 2 ends, it shows up as an open circuit. My question is is it possible to have a noticeable resistance from a coil, but no continuity? My understanding is that with no continuity, you have an open circuit. An open circuit is basically infinite resistance, but the resistance I measured was about 80 ohms.
