Imagine you’re flying down the freeway and you pass a state trooper. What is your first instinct? Most likely to look down at your speedometer to see how fast you’re going.
If you didn’t have an instrument panel, it would be impossible to measure speed. The same is true for measuring current, voltage, and amps, which are things we can’t see. We need a multimeter to measure these things.
