damn.....i have a protek cl200 inductance/capacitance meter........and your common ideal 61-361 multimeter.

i have no idea about scannign frequencies in meters, but both of my meters cannot be wrong.....they are both showing the same numbers.

unless water is not considered a dialetric material to them.

thank you for your reply.

edit: my cl200 scans at 80hz and 900hz and is considered high accuracy.

also: the resistance across my tubes and water is constantly changing and never a solid number.....continually going up and down up and down through a wide range......usually in the kilohm range.
I have watched the resistance vary greatly when the pulse is applied and this makes sense as the surface area and density of the water are changing with the H2 and O2 being released.  However in steady state the resistance is fairly steady.

burntwire: sorry i didn't clarify my myself.....when i use my meter to measure the resistance across my tubes a water it cannot lock onto a resistance.....and just goes up and down in the kilohm range

I just checked my water...

using my LCR meter, I get 7.7 ohms

then using my extech multi-meter I get about 15K, but like you, it changes, and on my case it is increasing, as I'm typing this, it is now 20K and climing.

now, I just swiched from Ohms to volts, and the cell had 240 milivolts, and dropping fast, now 222 mili.

so as I was measuring Ohms, the multimeter was charging the cell, and that is why the resistance using a multimeter changes.

now I checked the output signal on the LCR meter when in Resistance mode using the scope, and it has an AC wave. and that is why when using the LCR, it measures the acurate value 7.7ohms.

The Multimeter uses DC to measure resistance.
