Re: [DML] what is the Volt gage for?


Voltage is the difference in electrical potential between two points in 
a circuit. It's the push or pressure behind current flow through a 
circuit, and is measured in volts.

Think of it as water flowing in a river, a point at the top of a hill 
would be at a higher voltage level and a point at the bottom of a hill 
would be at a lower voltage level. Then, just as water flows from a high 
point to a low point, current flows from a point of high voltage to a 
point of low voltage. If one point is at 5 volts and another point is at 
0 volts then when a wire is connected between them, current will flow 
from the point at 5 volts to the point at 0 volts.
