Hi,

I'm new here and just now I got myself confused.... and am ashamed off
it!! ;-)

When I measure the resistance of a resistor, and have my multimeter in
200k position, and the resistance measures 67 ....

Is the resistance 670.000 or 6.700.000

???

Tnx. :)

67,000 ohms

The resistance is Lower than the 200K Maximum

Please,,,we all get confused now and then.

Hmmm this sounds like a digital meter. If so when it says "67" there
should be the "K" indication on the right side to indicate 67K ohms or
67,000 ohms. If it autoranges then "67" with no K should be 67 Ohms.
