You are provided with a number of resistors connected in a chain: One of the multimeters shall be used as a
voltmeter and the other as a milliameter. The voltmeter shall be set to the 20 V range and the miliameter to the
200 mA when in use.

Connect the battery, the resistor chain and the milliammeter in series.
Connect the voltmeter across the battery terminals with the positive lead connected to the positive
terminal of the battery.
Use the open lead of the milliammeter (red lead) as a switch and make a closed circuit by connecting
it to the second junction of the resistor chain. Then record the voltmeter and milliammeter readings V
and I respectively.
