What is voltmeter?
A voltmeter, also known as a voltage meter, is an instrument used for measuring the potential difference, or voltage, between two points in an electrical or electronic circuit. Some voltmeters are intended for use in direct current (DC) circuits; others are designed for alternating current (AC) circuits. Specialized voltmeters can measure radio frequency (RF) voltage.
A multimeter or a multitester, also known as a volt/ohm meter or VOM.
Types of voltmeter

Quantities measured- multimeters can measure many quantities as- • Voltage in volts.
• Current in amperes.
• Resistance in ohms.
Additionally, multimeters may also measure:
• Capacitance in farads.
• Conductance in Siemens.
• Duty cycle as a percentage.
• Frequency in hertz
• Inductance in henrys
• Temperature in degrees Celsius or Fahrenheit.
Digital multimeters may also include circuits for:
• Continuity that beeps when a circuit conducts.
