Why does an ammeter burn when kept in parallel connection and doesn't burn when in series?

Asked by joshipramo 18th April 2010, 6:27 PM
Answered by Expert

Ammeter has a low resistance, hence when placed in parallel with connection it provides a least resistance path and draws all the current, and burned.

While in series connection is takes only a fraction of the flowing current.
