Ammeter Basic Concept: What is the Current in Ampere Meter ?

Basic Electrical Engineering Interview Question: Ampere meter is connected in series with load. if there is also a short path, then what will be the current in Amp-Meter? (as shown below)

Ammeter Basic Concept

Explanatory Answer:

Current will be Zero (0) Because all ampere (flow of charge) will directly move to short circuited path, because amperes (flow of charge) take easiest way to move.

So in this case, current will not flow in the load, so the reading of Ampere-Meter will be Zero.

In the above circuit, The flow of electron (current) will be moving this way (see below fig).

But Remember: This is a short circuit, So never ever try it to make at home or elsewhere. This is only for clearing the basic concepts about Electrical and Electronics Engineering interviews Questions and Answers.

Moreover, The fuse will blown and even make a flame which may lead to serious injury and fire as well. Please stay safe.
