# What is Ammeter and Its Uses in Electric Circuit

An ammeter is well known as a name of ampere meter which is an electronic measuring instrument which is used to test or measure the ampere in a circuit. This article is about the ammeter and its types and function, however, in our incoming post, we will explain the wiring of an ammeter further.

What is Ammeter and Its Uses in Electric Circuit

## What is an Ammeter?

As I wrote in my above words that it is an electronic device which we use for testing the current in the electric circuit. This device helps us to know about the current (ampere) getting a circuit. Or we can say that we can test the consumption of electricity of an electric circuit using the ammeter.
Note that when in one second one coulombs of electron flow form a point called the one ampere (A).

### Types of Ammeter

There are two types of ammeter or ampere meter which we knew with the names of Analog and Digital An analog ammeter have a pointer which moves over a scale while a Digital meter shows us numeral reading on display.

### What is the Function of an Ammeter?

We use the ammeter by testing or measure the ampere in a circuit, by using the ammeter we can test the ampere or consumption of electric power in a circuit however for the microampere we use the microampere meter. The consumption of a circuit means how much current a circuit gets.
