The battery voltage of an analog multimeter drops by 20% of its original value. The multimeter is used to measure dc voltage of a circuit. The true voltage compared to the measured value is
The internal battery of an analog multimeter is used to find resistance. The battery voltage doesn’t influence the measurement of voltage. Hence, the true value and measured value both are same.
