Question

Alternating current cannot be measured by D.C ammeter because:


A
A.C cannot pass through D.C ammeter
loader
B
average value of current for complete cycle is zero
loader
C
A.C is virtual
loader
D
A.C changes its direction
loader

Solution

The correct option is D average value of current for complete cycle is zero
Alternating current cannot be measured by D.C ammeter because A.C. current have alternating signs and average value of current for complete cycle is zero and practical frequencies are like 50-60 Hz that means it changes signs more than 100 times a second which either is not visible on D.C. ammeters.
