Set your multimeter to an appropriate setting to be able to
test for resistance in the 10 ohms range.
3.
Place the red probe on the steel bar as shown in Figure 6
below and keep it there.
4.
Place the black probe down inside the two white plug
connectors shown in Figure 7, one after the other, and
write down the resistance readings of each. Ensure that
you make good contact with the probes to improve the
